About Policy Shapers
We want people with a learning disability to be able to live their lives the way their want.
We work with the government and others who make decisions about law, policy and practice. We make sure that these people understand what support people with a learning disability need to be able to live an independent and fulfilling life.
We do this in different ways including writing briefings and reports, responding to consultations and meeting decision-makers face to face.
We want people with a learning disability and their families to be involved as much as possible in this work. They know first-hand what needs to change and what good support looks like.
How to become a Policy Shaper
If you are someone with a learning disability, a family member or carer, who would like to help us shape policies and laws, then we want to hear from you.
There has been a lot of change due to the coronavirus pandemic. We are very keen to hear about how the changes to the way we live and how services are run are affecting you and your family.
