Learning Disability Commissioner proposed

In a new report published today Sir Stephen Bubb, Chief Executive of ACEVO, calls on the Government to appoint a Learning Disabilities Commissioner.

Sir Stephen Bubb’s original report followed the failure of Government to address the abuses revealed by the Winterbourne View scandal. His recommendations in ‘Winterbourne View – Time for Change’ (November 2014) suggested radical changes to the way the nation treats people with learning disabilities. 

In 'Time for Change - The Challenge Ahead' he now suggests that subsequent proposals (October 2015) to deliver these changes are based on over-optimistic assumptions and calls for the appointment of a Learning Disabilities Commissioner.

The report 'Time for Change - The Challenge Ahead' is available to read at:
