Involving Everyone

The focus of this work is on people with a profound and multiple learning disability and their families. Funding for this has come from North Cumbria and North East Integrated Care System, Learning Disability and Autism Workstream.

People with a profound and multiple learning disability are one of the most vulnerable and excluded groups of people in society.

 

There is often little focus on the quality of life they live and they are not always seen as equal and valued citizens.

 

The hope is that the work of ‘Involving Everyone’ will go some way towards addressing this.

 

A steering group for ‘Involving Everyone’ has been set up. This is made up of family carers, key professionals, and practitioners.

 

Families of people with a profound and multiple learning disability will be directing the work undertaken.

 

The work is based in North Cumbria and the North East, however we will share what we learn so that more people can benefit.

 

The idea of ‘citizenship’ is at the heart of the project. What does this look like for someone with a profound and multiple learning disability?

 

The aim is to get a better understanding of what life is like and the change needed to ensure people with a profound and multiple learning disability are living good lives as valued members of society.
