The Scottish Government has committed to developing a resource to support disabled children, young people and their families. Content for the resource has been gathered from over 90 different policy areas within the Scottish Government. The present timeframe is to publish a draft for consultation in May 2018, with the final resource being published in Winter 2018/19 as a website and mobile/device application.
Scottish Government is seeking feedback on the draft resource, and the ALLIANCE is hosting a consultation event on Tuesday 12th June from 10am – 12pm at the ALLIANCE Offices, Venlaw Building, 349 Bath Street, Glasgow, G2 4AA. The feedback from the consultation will help Scottish Government to make the resource as useful and accessible as it possibly can be for those who will use it.
The resource will aim to:
- Provide clear, accessible information on national policies, entitlements, rights and the different options for support available.
- Point towards guides to policies, legislation and available service along with examples and real life case studies to showcase best practice.
Spanning the full three-month period, the consultation will include all of the content gathered from over 90 different policy areas, and will also be provided in British Sign Language, Easy Read and a summarised version for children and young people. There are limited spaces available for this event so please register via the form below to secure your place. Please also advise of any accessibility requirements by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We are keen to get as many different voices as possible, so please forward to networks who may be interested. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so please do book early to secure your place. Please also advise of any accessibility needs.
Should you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
