Parent’s Group statement on Neglect

The People First (Scotland) Parents’ Group has written a statement about neglect. We are very worried about the proposed change to the crime of neglect. We think this will have an unfair impact on parents with learning disabilities if we don’t get the support we need. We are asking parents, professionals and organisations to add their name to the statement. We will then send it to the Minister for Children and Young People, Maree Todd. If you are happy to add your name please email Jane Lewis on by 8th June.
