Camphill Families and Friends have published a “Handover Guide” for family members or friends who take on the role of supporters of people with learning disabilities who live in Camphill communities in England and Wales.  There are many aspects to this role and not all will be relevant to you.

  • Taking over as the supporter of someone with learning disabilities
  • Where does funding come from?
  • What is Advocacy?
  • The Mental Capacity Act
  • Appointeeship, Lasting Power of Attorney and Deputyship

This film gives an overview of how learning disabled people have been viewed by society from the 18th century until the present day. It has some really interesting insights into how recent welfare cuts “target” them and threaten progress.
