Equalities Scoping Study
Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities (NJ1)
"Valuing People Now" is for all adults with learning disabilities and their families. This means it should be fair for everyone: (1) young people and older people; (2) people of any race or culture; (3) people of any religion or belief; (4) gay, lesbian, straight, bisexual and transgender people; (5) men and women; (6) people with learning disabilities who have other disabilities or health problems. Alongside "Valuing People Now" was a report called an "Equality Impact Assessment." This looked at the experiences of all the different groups in the list above. It said that things were still not fair for everyone. It said the actions in "Valuing People Now" should help to make things fairer. The Foundation was also asked to look at what was happening about helping people to develop friendships and relationships. The Foundation was asked to look at: (1) articles and reports; (2) websites; and (3) the Choice Forum, Hidden Loves Network and UK Health and Learning Disability Network.
