Are you someone with a learning disability? Do you want to make change happen? Do you or someone you know want to join our exciting team?
SCLD wants to recruit up to 3 new members of the team.
‘Include For Good’ is the Scottish Commission for People with Learning Disabilities’ (SCLD) programme for change.
Include For Good is about changing attitudes and making Scotland a more equal place.
We want to create a world where people with learning disabilities are seen, heard and fully supported to live their best life.
Include For Good is committed to challenging the status quo and achieving greater visibility and inclusion of people with learning disabilities in all aspects of Scottish life.
Include For Good is led by people with learning disabilities who aim to move power and control to people who are experts by experience.
The programme is currently led by 7 people with learning disabilities who work with the SCLD board, senior leaders and key decision-makers across Scotland to change society’s view of the status, value and contribution of people with learning disabilities. They are called Rapporteurs.
A Rapporteur is:
People with learning disabilities in Scotland, and their families and carers, need transformative change to happen.
They currently face discrimination and a denial of their human rights in almost every aspect of life.
In so many areas of life people with learning disabilities have the poorest outcomes of anyone.
This has to change.
The Include For Good Rapporteurs have identified 8 Pillars. These are the 8 areas where they feel change needs to happen most.
Read more about our Pillars.
Include For Good is entirely co-produced. It is led by the Rapporteurs with their leadership and drive being supported by SCLD. There is no road map for what we are doing, so we are all learning and growing together. The Rapporteur is a paid role as this is an essential part of people feeling valued and respected.
Include For Good is already making a difference to the Rapporteurs, SCLD and to Scotland.
Through their work as Rapporteurs, the team have grown in confidence, gained new skills and made new connections. As a result Rapporteurs are:
Through Include For Good SCLD has found a new way of working together and learned about what it takes to be fully inclusive and put people with learning disabilities in the lead.
Include For Good is having an impact across Scotland with exciting work underway with key allies following our highly successful meeting at the Scottish Parliament on 4th May 2023. Read more about the meeting at the Scottish Parliament.
