Speakup has been working with disabled people to produce a fantastic new resource about Personal Budgets.We produced the work for SYCIL in Doncaster, who now have it live to see at www.sycil.org/LiveitLoveit.aspx.
We went from 5 to 11 MPs in the House of Commons today to debate #transformingcare and the lives of 1.5 million people with learning disabilities. Where were the other 649 MPs- Why do the lives of people with learning disabilities and/or autism only seem to matter to a minority!
#TransformingCare debate in the House of Commons there are still over 2000 people with learning disabilities in hospital.. The number of people with autism has increased by over 1/3. Almost 48% of people covered by the transforming care agenda are autistic.
