What does a Good Life for people with a learning disability look like in this new decade?
Learning Disability England wants to work with people, groups and organisations to talk about what we know people with learning disabilities and / or autism want so they can live a good life.
There has been lots of research over the years and we believe the time has come to take action together. We believe the power of change lies in you, our membership, talking and working together to work out what you agree on and can take action on together.
This must be a plan everyone can get involved in and feel part of. We think it is really important that self advocates – people with a learning disability and / or autism – lead this work. This must not be a plan only for Learning Disability England but something everyone can use.
Why we are doing this?
We are doing this because people have told us there needs to be more joined up action – people working together – to make a real difference.
Lots of people told us they want to work with other people or groups to change things.
What Learning Disability England will do
We will help bring people together, connect ideas or pieces of work.
We will start by asking some people with learning disabilities to come to a meeting on 19th February 2020. At that meeting we will agree with them the most important things to work on and how we should work.
How to get involved
Please tell us if you want to be part of this work, and if you have any good work you want to share with others.
If you are a self-advocate, you can do that by coming to the meeting in February. If you want to know more about that please
contact us on the phone number or email address below.
We also ask everyone – whether you are a member or not – to please fill in a short survey on line HERE
