COUNTDOWN TO THE SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT’S
COMING HOME DEADLINE
The Scottish Government has made the promise to ‘significantly reduce’ long hospital stays and out-of-area residential placements for people with learning disabilities or complex needs by March 2024.
People First (Scotland) welcomes this announcement but a single day longer living in these places is too long. We will post updates here on this work, too many promises have been made before and not kept.
We ask the Scottish Government to abolish substitute decision-making and establish supported decision-making across Scotland, realising and respecting our human rights to independent and family life.
