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.
The House of Commons is currently talking about Social Care & the Mental Capacity Act. Please look at the proposed changes to the Mental Capacity Act and download the Hansard Report tomorrow. This is really important to the lives of people with learning disabilities and autism.

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.
