Our service users tell us they want to be listened to and for people to act on what they say.
The Mental Capacity Act (Amendment Bill) is currently going through readings in parliament.
The Grace Eyre Ambassadors were asked their thoughts on the new bill and sent these off to Learning Disability England, who represents many Learning Disability organisations across the UK.
The Ambassadors views have been used as evidence against the amendments, with a service user reporting that they had heard our name read out on parliamentary TV!
Here is the link to our evidence on the parliamentary website: https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201719/cmpublic/MentalCapacity/memo/MCAB39.htm
A big congratulations to the Ambassadors for representing Grace Eyre so well!
