Why the ‘No voice unheard, no right ignored’ consultation matters

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Autism strategy, Consultations and surveys, Mental health

To mark the launch of the recent green paper consultation: No voice unheard, no right ignored - a consultation for people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health conditions, Kerry Martin and Craig Hart from the National Forum of People with Learning Disabilities and Vicky Raphael from the National Valuing Families Forum took time explain on camera why this engagement exercise is so important.

And for those who haven’t seen it, Norman Lamb, Minister of State for Care and Support, and Gavin Harding MBE, Co-chair of the Transforming Care Assurance Board, announced the launch with this video message on YouTube.

The consultation is live until 29 May 2015 and its findings will be presented to the next administration later in the year. This is your opportunity to make a positive difference in people’s lives and we hope these films will inspire you to contribute.

    This is a very important document and I intend to comment. I hope that when published it is followed up and that people are employed to check that it is being implemented and not just put on a shelf to gather dust. It is so good to see people with learning Disabilities playing a part. Too often others speak for them.
