No voice unheard, no right ignored: Have your say

News: No voice unheard

The Government is consulting over how to strengthen the rights of people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health issues so they can live independently, be included in their community, and make choices about their own lives.

The consultation explores a range of options on issues such as how people can:

  • expect to be supported to live independently, as part of a community
  • be assured that their views will be listened to and be able to challenge decisions about them and about their care
  • exercise control over the support they receive with a Personal Health Budget
  • know that professionals are looking out for their physical health needs as well as their mental health needs

The Department of Health are encouraging responses which you can give here (along with further information about the consultation).

This consultation will end on 29 May 2015.
