Community-based day activities and supports for people with learning disabilities

Messages from 'Having a good day' - Political will and support

What research tells us

Without political will and support modernisation of day services and development of community-based support is slow to develop.

What’s happening in practice at the moment

Pointers for development

Practice examples

In the London Borough of Ealing the Partnership Group - people with learning disabilities who link into the Partnership Board - have campaigned very actively and directly for new developments. They have had a real impact, with the result that a Travel Buddy scheme has been set up, and taxi cards have been made available. Their target now is to get more accessible changing places around the borough.
