Encouraging Thoughts about Social Inclusion

04 Oct 2016

We draw strength from a recent blog by Alicia Wood, Chief Executive of Learning Disability England, emphasising the importance of communities where everyone's contribution is valued.

"Dealing with loneliness and isolation with new models of housing and support is crucial," she writes. "Housing and support providers need to start thinking ‘community’ and connecting people up with their communities and peers.

"Imagine a community where people with learning disabilities have a real role in making that community a better place, where people are seen as real contributors to society and have a valued place. This doesn’t cost much but requires a different way of thinking and working."

We couldn't agree more!
