We have given consideration to Mencap's policy statement Making rights a reality. The rights of people with a learning disability were looked at as part of the consultation Valuing People Now: From Progress to Transformation. A copy of this has been placed in the Library. The deadline for responses to this consultation was 28 March 2008 and the responses are currently being analysed. The valuing people now delivery strategy will explicitly include a strand of work around promoting awareness of a human rights approach to learning disability services.
