Consultation around “No Voice Unheard No Right Ignored” Green Paper for people with a learning disability and/or autism
The primary outcome of the work of Healthwatch and Sunderland People First was to feedback a range of Stakeholder opinions into the national consultation and this was achieved. Our secondary aim was to provide a report, with an emphasis upon people's views on the Sunderland experience that could be shared with local commissioners and providers.
Groundwork NE & Cumbria supported Sunderland Healthwatch to effectively engage children and young people in the city through their expertise, knowledge and locally based Children and Young People’s programmes.
