Making it personal : our Social Care Charter

We believe people with learning disabilities or autism should have equal chances to live the life they choose. We created a Social Care Charter together with the people we support.

The Social Care Charter tells everyone what people want to be able to live the life they choose. The people we support decided on five things they believe are the most important. We called these pledges. 

If we can deliver these promises, we will make a positive and lasting difference to people’s lives.

The main points of our charter are:

I want choice and control over my money
I want opportunities for greater independence
I want to be a part of my community
I want to have control and choice over my relationships
I want to have a voice and be listened to

At a round table in Parliament the people we support with learning disabilities and autism set out their top five priorities when it comes to social care enabling them to lead lives to their full potential. 

The people we support have been playing an active role in raising awareness of the Social Care Charter and have secured over 2,000 signatures of support including from a number of MPs, social care providers, umbrella groups, other people with learning disabilities and autism and the wider public.
