‘A Practical Guide to Supported Decision Making’ – Paradigm
Paradigm were hearing from supporters across the country that people with a learning disability are often not involved in making decisions about their lives.
They hope that by co-producing an updated version of the 2008 booklet, they will help people to have more more clarity and confidence in how they support others to make decisions.
Stay Up Late
Stay Up Late campaigns to make sure people with learning disabilities, and autistic people, are able to lead full and active social lives. This includes challenging support systems that stop people with learning disabilities being able to stay up late and live the life they choose.
They spoke to lots of people with learning disabilities across the country who said there are only 10 things they really want in life, and they’re all things many people take for granted. From this, they created a manifesto for an ‘Ordinary Life’.
