Motion: Day Services for Individuals with a Learning Disability


That this Assembly endorses the Bamford Review Equal Lives report and the expectations it places across all Departments; supports the Northern Ireland Executive’s Bamford Action Plan 2012-15, including the action to “enhance provision of person-centred day opportunities (including employment provision) for people with a learning disability that facilitate integration into the community”; recognises that, while day centre provision will always be required, more must be done to promote choice and independence for individuals living with learning disabilities, including development of employment opportunities, access to culture, arts and leisure, transport and education opportunities; demands full and meaningful involvement of service users, carers and other stakeholders in the development of new services; calls for improved access for people with learning disabilities to high quality, individualised services through supported living, supported employment, productive daytime opportunities, educational, social and leisure activities; encourages benchmarking of day services/day opportunities in order to drive improvements, ensure consistency of quality and equity of access; and urges the Minister of Health, Social Services and Public Safety, and Executive colleagues, to work cross-departmentally alongside voluntary/ community organisations and statutory agencies to put in place a network of services that deliver enhanced opportunities for those with learning disabilities.
