Government Consultation


Care Minister Norman Lamb has launched a “No voice unheard, no right ignored” programme to stengthen the rights of people with Learning Disabilities, Autism and Mental Health Conditions.

The consultation is asking for your views on a range of proposed measures, as Normal Lamb states, “Everyone must have access to the right care in the right place. They must be involved in the decisions affecting them and not “prisoners” of a system, as they so often feel they are. That is why I have launched ‘No voice unheard, no right ignored’ to look at what legislative changes are needed to make sure people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health conditions are listened to and treated fairly”.


The consultation will last for 12 weeks from 6th March 2015 – 29th May 2015.


They need your views, as families and carers of individuals with learning disabilities. If you are part of a Parent Carer Forum or participation group, please share this information to make sure that everyone is given an opportunity to share their views for this consultation.
