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.

Where we are now
We started with a vision to disrupt the normal way of doing things, to shift the power and control to people who are experts by experience.
SCLD worked with a team of trusted advisers, people with learning disabilities, to shape the thinking about Include For Good and the role of the Rapporteur.
Recruited at the end of 2021, our Rapporteurs are now well into their leadership journey.
Together, the team identified 8 pillars where change needs to happen for most people with learning disabilities in Scotland. They have shared these with two Ministers and and also with senior leaders and key decision-makers at an event in the Scottish Parliament in May 2023. From this event, strong allies were made. Work is ongoing with these allies to build on the commitments they made at the event and we are very excited about the potential impact of this work on the lives of people with learning disabilities in Scotland.
Our next steps
The Rapporteurs continue to challenge us to think differently, to go further and to plan to change Scotland for good.
Our role at SCLD is to support their leadership and drive. There is no road map for what we are doing so we are all learning and growing together.
