Introducing ‘Include for Good’

Web Admin News item

‘Include For Good’ is the Scottish Commission for People with Learning Disabilities’ (SCLD) programme for change.  

Include For Good is about ensuring that people with learning disabilities are included in every aspect of Scottish life and challenge the status quo. The programme will consist of 8 people with learning disabilities who will work with the SCLD board, leaders and organisations across Scotland to help change attitudes and make Scotland a more equal place.  

Include For Good wants to create a world where people with learning disabilities are seen, heard and fully supported to live their best life.  

Why we need Include For Good

People with learning disabilities in Scotland, and their families and carers, need transformative change to happen. 

They currently face discrimination and a denial of their human rights in almost every aspect of life.  

In terms of education, health, employment, justice and many other areas, people with learning disabilities have the poorest outcomes of anyone. 

This has to change. 

Get Involved

Are you someone with a learning disability? 

Do you want to make change happen? 

Do you or someone you know want to co-design Include For Good?  

SCLD wants to recruit up to 8 Rapporteurs.  

A Rapporteur is: 

  • Someone who investigates issues and challenges 
  • Someone who speaks to decision makers and leaders 
  • Someone who reports on the actions that need to happen 
  • Someone who checks that these actions have happened   

Are you, or someone you know, interested in becoming a Rapporteur?

Initial Planning  

SCLD has been working with a group of trusted advisers, people with learning disabilities, who know that change has to happen.  

They have helped to shape our thinking about Include For Good and the role of the Rapporteur.  

Our trusted advisers have challenged us to think differently, to go further and to plan to change Scotland for good.  

Allies

To achieve the transformative change people with learning disabilities require, Include For Good will need many allies.
