Inspiration from Scotland – a group of adults with learning disabilities who work to improve the lives of people like them. They challenge attitudes and influence the planning of relevant policies through their membership of boards and committees that make decisions affecting their lives. They also provide training to organisations that deliver public services. The training is unique and innovative both in its use of Forum Theatre and because it is conceived, designed and delivered by the Group members and is based on their own experiences – the people who use the services training the people who deliver the services.
The work of the Good Life Group has a positive, lasting impact on the lives of people with a learning disability by addressing the inequalities they face and taking direct action to challenge and redress them.
