National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi) comments on government response to ‘No voice unheard no right ignored’ consultation
Rob Greig, chief executive of social change organisation NDTi and former government learning disabilities director, said:
“This is a massive lost opportunity. The document completely lacks a framework and vision for how people with learning disabilities can be supported to have better lives in the future. It repeatedly promises new guidance to facilitate change when such guidance already exists. There are no actions or proposals in the entire document that make positive change more likely and many of the good ideas contained in the original consultation have been shelved.”
NDTi is a social change organisation that works to achieve a society that is inclusive of all people, where factors like disability and age are not an obstacle to people achieving good life outcomes. We have been at the forefront of the progressive learning disabilities agenda for 35 years. We advocate radical action that empowers people with learning disabilities to live as equal citizens and take a lead in decision making.
