Comments Off on Guide to improve access for people with learning disabilities
Today the Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities, in partnership with Values Incorporated, have launched a new report and guide for local businesses and public services to make sure that they are open to all.
The ‘Accomplished Communities’ report draws on 3 years of practical work in local Kent communities and helps us better understand the most important challenges faced in multi sector work to ensure that a broad definition of access is understood and acted upon by all.
Also published today is a guide “Thinking about Inclusion” which helps staff of public service, local businesses and community services find out more about how to become accessible for people with learning disabilities.
Part of the Building Inclusive Communities project funded by Kent County Council, the report and guide provide information and support to local services on how to go about becoming more welcoming to people with learning disabilities, to improve the service that they receive, ensure better access and ultimately improve their life chances alongside other people.
