The Voluntary Organisations Disability Group welcome the publication of Sir Stephen Bubb’s latest report on the transforming care agenda.
VODG chief executive Rhidian Hughes said:
“This is a welcomed report with good recommendations. We need to continue to seek constructive ways of building and sustaining good relationships across all parts of the system. This will ensure people with learning disabilities and autism exercise full choice and control over how they want to be supported”.
Dr Hughes goes on to say:
“But we are nearly five years on from the Panorama on Winterbourne View. The transforming care programme requires significant change to be delivered, and we are not seeing re-provision out of assessment and treatment units happening at scale or pace. We need to build up capability and capacity to ensure the right support is in place to allow people with learning disabilities to achieve their aspirations and choices”.
