After an extended period of consultation reflection and some changes, we are pleased to share the final versions of the Purpose of this Community of Practice.
To download these please click on the picture below.
The first four actions identified as priorities by the group that met in May 2013 are:-
1) Help people with learning disabilities to know what to expect
2) Raise awareness with front line staff
3) Think about how we will know the Community is working well
4) Influencing people, organisations and governments.
So far we are pleased to have 91 people or organisations following this blog, many of whom are supporting and caring for people on a daily basis. We are also pleased to have been sharing opportunities for people with learning disabilities and frontline staff to get involved with.
We have been approached by care staff and family carers to help them identify how to know what to expect, and what is expected of them when they are admitted to hospital. We are going to be looking for people to help with a project like this. Do you know anyone that might want to help?
