Valuing People Now

An overhaul and strengthening of the 2001 Valuing People has been announced today by Phil Hope, Care Services Minster.

Valuing People Now will be a three-year plan to improve the lives of people with learning disabilities. It builds on the four key principles set out in the original document and will include some of the groups who missed out in 2001 including black and Asian people, those with autism or complex needs, offenders and carers.

Further detail can be read in The Guardian article Government urged to boost funding for learning disability services .
The LookUp Forum also has a
summary .
The Government strategy can be downloaded from the Department of Health Website. An Easy read version is also available
