Improving Support for Parents with Learning DisabilitiesPosted on 26th May 2016 by Matt Day
Life for parents with learning disabilities isn’t just hard — it can be isolating, unsupported, and unfair.
When Brighton & Hove City Council announced they were convening a Fairness Commission to look at inequalities in Brighton & Hove and were seeking examples of unfairness across the city, our first thought was to the situation we see every day surrounding parents with learning disabilities. Our Interact service provides advocacy support to these parents who are being tested on their ability to look after their children, a test where the price of failure can be never seeing your child again.
