What is Good Lives: Building Change Together?
Work on Good Lived started in 2020, when a group of 40 self advocates came together in Birmingham.
Good Lives brings together people’s thoughts and ideas about what it will take for everyone with learning disabilities to be able to live their good life.
The framework is there to start a debate and give ideas for action.
Learning Disability England host it but they do not control it.
It belongs to the community.
The Framework document
The Good Lives Framework has 6 chapters.
Each chapter looks at what is happening now as well as what rights agreements say
There is also work that people are already doing that is brilliant or important.
And some ideas for change that anyone can start to use now or campaign for together
The first session at the 2022 conference was when Good Lives: Building Change Together went live.
The next step for the Good Lives framework is for people to work together to make it better or to take action if they can
What might you do to turn the framework into real change so that all people with learning disabilities can live their #GoodLives?
