Learning Disability England, BILD and Valuing People Alliance are looking for success stories to include in Helping People Thrive, the first of two planned practical guides looking at how to transform the lives of people with a learning disability and/or autism who have been detained in hospital or in Long Term Segregation for too long.
If you (or someone you know) have been out of hospital without readmission for more than a year, they would love to hear from you about:
How did you decide where to live?
How did you decide who would support you?
How does your support help you live your life?
What do you want to do next in your life?
Please get in touch to tell them your story by emailing them at: info@LDEngland.org.uk or phoning them on 0300 111 0444.
Have you, or someone you know, built a new life in the community after being kept in hospital for a long time?
The Government has just announced funding of £62 million to help move people from hospital settings back into their local community.
Right2Home would like you to write to your MP to call for more to be done to move people with Learning Disabilities and Autism out of mental health hospitals and back into their community.
