Quality-checking the UK Government

By Press Office
January 15, 2015

Between 14 January and 11 February 2015 you can get your chance to say how well or otherwise the UK Government has done in building a better society.

Over the past few weeks, Learning Disability Alliance England (LDA) has worked closely with the National Forum of People with Learning Disabilities, the National Valuing Families Forum and its own expert Advisory Group to define what a 'good society' means to people and families.

This is the first time people with learning disabilities and their families have come together to define what a good society looks like. It is the first time that people, families and all citizens will get the chance to say whether or not our Government has improved or damaged society for people with learning disabilities.

The results of this poll will be released in Westminster on 24 February 2015. Please join in and let other people know about this important initiative.
