Invisible No More – Life for People with Learning Disabilities in Scotland

Partnership Event Considers Challenges for People with Learning Disabilities

Emma Congreve, Deputy Director of Fraser of Allander Institute

GCVS was pleased to host the Fraser of Allander Institute for an online session looking at the Institute’s wide ranging research on the lives and experiences of people with learning disabilities in Scotland.

On 6 March, our session ‘Invisible No More’ heard from Emma Congreve and Rob Watts as they outlined their research into outcomes for people with learning disabilities in Scotland.  The session also considered learning disability related policy and developments such as the new Learning Disability Bill with the audience. 

We heard more detail on previous research and about a new phase that will focus on data, evidence and employment outcomes for people with learning disabilities.

This work comes at a critical juncture for Scotland, with the new National Care Service, Human Rights Bill, Learning Disabilities Autism and Neurodiversity Bill and Scottish Government learning disabilities strategy all on the horizon.

You can download the presentations delivered at this event below.

Our thanks go to Emma Congreve, Deputy Director of the Fraser of Allander Institute, Rob Watts and David Jack also of the Institute, and Richard Baker of Enable

The Fraser of Allander Institute is moving to a new phase of this research and would like to make contact with those in the voluntary sector who work with people with learning disabilities in Glasgow and beyond.
