Why is is important to speak about Good Lives?

Scott Watkin – Self-advocate Rep

Good Lives is so important for us as we are seen to be forgotten people. Good Lives gives ideas to us all to support people to have a good life whether its health employment or living in our own home and to speak up so we can have a better quality of life.

Tim Keilty – Paid Supporter Rep

“It is vitally important that MPs know about Good Lives. Sometimes politicians jump behind catchy slogans and say they support things without really understanding the nuts and bolts. Good Lives is the nuts and bolts – designed and developed by people with lived experience and those who support them. Good Lives is much more than a catchy slogan it is the WHAT the WHY and the HOW.”

Kate Chate – Family and Friends Rep

“Letting our elected representatives (MPs and Councillors) know all about the Good Lives Framework is a great way to help them get ahead of the game and not have to ask us all (again) what we want or how to achieve it – as it is all very clearly laid out.  Using the framework will therefore save them time, money and energy – and will mean that people will get what they want and need.  Which will mean happy voters!”
