Making it Happen

P1000553On the back of the postcards Shaun and Colleen’s families share what it took to make good local support happen for Shaun and Colleen. We’ll be using your postcards to send a strong message to commissioners and MPs about what support is needed for everyone to be able to access the kind of support Shaun and Colleen have now.

If you have a relative or a friend with severe learning disabilities who needs support in their daily life please have a look at our free resources.

Lives like Colleen’s and Shaun’s take planning but there are some resources out there to help you out. Why not start with the Challenging Behaviour Foundation’s Planning for the Future information sheet.

We also have a Planning for the future information pack and you can download the whole thing on our website (there are different versions if you live in Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland).IMG_0010

Or have a look at our Ten Top Tips

Housing was central to Colleen and Shaun’s support packages. Have a look at our guides to housing here and here

We also like the My Kind of Future guide from the Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities.

If you know of any other great resources you think should be up here let us know at
