Change, for good
Include for Good aims to be the catalyst for transformative change, for good, forever, in Scotland.
We are led by the diverse voices of people with learning disabilities who aim to move power and control to people with lived experience.
We aim to change societies view of the status, value and contribution of people with learning disabilities.
We will question the norms and disrupt traditional thinking around learning disabilities.
We are committed to achieving greater visibility and inclusion for people with learning disabilities in all aspects of Scottish life.
Why Scotland needs Include For Good
In the wake of a pandemic that has deepened the level of inequality and injustice experienced by people with learning disabilities the time for change is now!
People’s lived experience must drive the change. The Include For Good Programme for Change is led by 10 Rapporteurs, who are all people with lived experience of learning disability.
This is now the moment to be bold, disruptive in our thinking, challenging in our demands and resolute in our goal to bring people with a learning disability from the back of the queue to the front of the queue.
Watch the video to learn more about Include For Good.
The Rapporteurs are people with learning disabilities who will champion the changes that need to take place across all aspects of Scottish society. The Rapporteurs will be inviting decision makers, key influencers and leaders in Scotland to come and speak to them.
These conversations must lead to action being taken to create inclusive opportunities for everyone living with a learning disability in Scotland.

Our first steps
SCLD have worked with a group of trusted advisers, people with learning disabilities, who were clear that change needs to happen. They helped shape our thinking about Include For Good and the role of the Rapporteur. Our trusted advisers have challenged us to think differently, to go further and to plan to change Scotland for good!
