Living a Good Life - what works to help make great lives?

National Learning Disabilities & Autism Show and Awards  

Nearly a thousand people attended a day of celebration in the National Learning Disabilities and Autism Show and Awards at the Birmingham ICC on 15 May. Build for the Future, BILD’s group of self-advocates, organised the day event, called 'Living a Good Life'. It was a great success and people with learning disabilities and autism, family carers and those working in support came together to hear about what kind of support is wanted to help make great lives.

After this, the evening saw the National Learning Disability & Autism Awards, an event designed to recognise and celebrate those people and organisations who are providing the right support.

Cost of ‘living wage’ could make home care market unviable says industry

28 July 2015: The national living wage rise could result in a "catastrophic failure" in the home care market, the industry is warning. The 'Living Wage' announced in the budget would see workers over 25 being paid £7.20 an hour from April 2016, rising to £9 by 2020. The UK Homecare Association claims the increase in wages would force councils to pay £16.70 to its employees when travel costs and pensions are taken into account.
