advocacy conversation


The keys to life emphasises the importance of the voices of people with learning disabilities being heard. The keys to life Recommendation 32 calls for SCLD to scope advocacy services.

SCLD is carrying out this scoping exercise. Its aim is to establish the levels of provision of independent advocacy for people with learning disabilities across Scotland, and to assess its effectiveness and impact; to explore how many people with learning disabilities access advocacy, the levels of unmet need, and to identify the barriers to access; We want to identify effective approaches or models of provision, and examples of good practice.

The report of this work will be published in spring 2018, and will be available here.
