I have experience in Government SEND policy in England
Where I Want To Live is a new national Charity that has been established to promote the vision of a country where all adults with learning disabilities have choice about where and how they want to live.
Legislation says that adults with learning disabilities should have choice and control over their lives and we believe this should be so.
There is much evidence to suggest that this is not the case and we aim to provide resources and support to educate young adults and their support networks so that positive social change takes place, with choice and control becoming a reality.
We will empower young people with learning disabilities by providing information and options on where and how they might live in their adult lives.
One of our key objectives is to assist effective implementation of the government policies that are relevant to our vision and mission. In order to do this we must be sure that our knowledge is current as well as offers the best chance of future proofing.
Therefore, we would love to hear from you if you have the experience and knowledge of English SEND policy development and implementation, which includes as a priority the SEND Code of Practice and Care Act 2014.
