The ALLIANCE and MECOPP have published a report from an event on Self-directed Support, human rights and people with learning disabilities.

On 26 November 2019, the ALLIANCE and MECOPP (the Minority Ethnic Carers of Older People Project) jointly hosted the last of a series of Masterclasses on Self-directed Support (SDS).

Previous events in the series have focused on transitions, challenging SDS decisions, and creative uses of SDS. This final workshop focus was SDS, human rights and people with learning disabilities, with speakers from the Scottish Commission for Learning Disabilities (SCLD) and People First Scotland.

A report containing the feedback from small group and plenary discussions at the event can be downloaded below.
