Workforce Development for People with Intellectual Disabilities: The Perspective from People with Intellectual Disabilities
Davies, Jill; Burke, Christine
Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities
Health Education England working across Kent, Surrey and Sussex (HEE KSS) have been developing a project over the last few years with the single aim to create a sustainable and secure workforce supply, for people that have intellectual disabilities who require support from and/ or access to services across Kent, Surrey and Sussex. Their report, "Workforce Development for People with Intellectual Disabilities", was published in March 2015. Following on from this, HEE KSS commissioned the Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities to produce a report that would detail the opinions and perspectives of individuals who have a learning disability from across Kent, Surrey and Sussex, asking them what they would like their workforce to know. The project ran from April to August 2016. The Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities is a national charity that promotes the rights, quality of life, and opportunities of people with learning disabilities and their families. The aim of the report is to convey to HEE KSS an in-depth review of opinions and perspectives of individuals who have a learning disability from across Kent, Surrey and Sussex, asking them what they would like their workforce to know. In order to reach those with more complex needs the report will also include the views of a small number of families. Appended to the report are a: (1) Questionnaire; and (2) The five good communication standards by the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists, 2013.
