Unlocking futures for people with learning disabilities


A new framework has been launched to support the Scottish Government’s strategy on learning disabilities.

The keys to life: unlocking futures for people with learning disabilities covers the period from 2019-2021.

The framework is the result of significant engagement with people with learning disabilities and stakeholders to identify priorities for the final years of the existing strategy.

It addresses the whole life journey and a set of priorities that reflect this.

Those priorities are grouped under four themes of Living, Learning, Working and Wellbeing.

They focus on priority action areas that recognise the aspirations and expectations of people with learning disabilities.

The Government also recognises that the need to deliver fair opportunities for people with learning disabilities has to include changing societal attitudes and behaviours.

They and COSLA are committed to working together to deliver the framework and to working with people with learning disabilities, our key stakeholder organisations, the Scottish Commission for Learning Disability, the Scottish Learning Disabilities Observatory and the Scottish Parliament.

Both say a collaborative approach to delivery will be vital going forward.
