Comments About The Charter

 

People have recently said the following about how they intend to use the Charter:

• “I will use this to inform our own inclusion strategy which we are developing with the people we support. I will make sure that our self-advocacy groups and ambassadors are aware of the charter so that they can tell others too, and check we are achieving the goals.”

• “We will provide a copy for our service users, families and staff. We plan to refer to Charter in Induction and Diversity training.”

• “We will be looking to adopt the National Charter for Inclusion as part of our own updated single Equality Scheme, which will in turn recognise the requirements of the Public Sector Equality Duty, which places additional obligations on public authorities and those who provide services through public money.”

• “We will build the principles of the Charter into project planning and improve our outreach into the community.”

• “I work to ensure that every person that needs support from the service is treated equally and that their rights are respected. I will promote health passports to all service users; and will continue to help people report hate crimes in a safe environment (this has been a big issue of late). I support people to have their voice heard in a number of ways; which includes attending medical appointments, jobcentre interviews (work and benefits) and talking to other professionals (mostly social workers). I will ensure that the charter is circulated and enforced by these other professionals when working with all members of the community.”

• “We will use the charter to improve our service to people with learning disabilities.”

• “Keep up to date with what is happening.”

• “Will build the principles of the Charter into project planning. Improve our outreach into the community.”

• “Real Life Options will be looking to adopt the National Charter for Inclusion as part of our own updated Single Equality Scheme, which will in turn recognise the requirements of the Public Sector Equality Duty, which places additional obigations on public authorities and those who provide services through public money.”

• “We are already doing many of the things that are in the Charter. We will now check out how well we are doing with the help of people with Learning Disabilities from BME communities and their families. We will also make plans to get better at some things, like linking with more local BME organisations around employment and making sure that people are in housing that meets their needs for independence and safety.”

• “Managers of services and facilities will be supported to sign up to the Charter and it will be displayed in Adult Disability Day Centres.”

• “By involving carers on both local and national levels in promoting Learning Disability carers / users issues and to ensure that both carers and users needs are considered on both local and national agenda.”

• “To demonstrate that FCL is committed to inclusion (albeit in an ethnically non diverse area) and to push forward the inclusion agenda within the organisation.”

• “Our service offers personalised advice / support for children / young people with autism and their families. Our target audience are the BME community and people, and disadvantaged / low income families. The Charter’s principles are an extension of our values and beliefs and we will support and promote it at every opportunity.”
