Today sees the launch of The Scottish Government’s new Implementation Framework for The keys to life, Scotland’s learning disability strategy.

The Implementation Framework 2019 – 2021 adopts a ‘whole system, whole population and whole person’ approach to improving the lives of people with learning disabilities in Scotland.

The Scottish Commission for Learning Disability is looking forward to working with the Scottish Government, COSLA and partners to deliver the Framework and work towards unlocking better futures for people with learning disabilities in Scotland.

SCLD Chief Executive, Chris Creegan said:

This new implementation framework represents a step change in the aspirations of the The keys to life strategy for people with learning disabilities in Scotland – policy  underpinned by a whole system, whole population and whole person approach. One which recognises that people with learning disabilities are citizens with ambitions and talents who want to make a contribution to Scottish society. As a strategic partner to The Scottish Government, the Scottish Commission for Learning Disability will play its part in delivering the framework’s priorities to unlock futures.”
