What people say
The Scottish Transitions Forum has been great at helping us to find our way through all the different legislation and get ideas to solve problems and address issues.
It feels really good to be involved, people really listen to me.
We have benefited from the Scottish Transitions Forum bringing different sectors together and giving us an opening to work jointly with other partners.
We already have a level of involvement and aspiration to improve this. The Charter has acted as a catalyst for this.

The Keep Safe scheme will be a real help to people with a learning disability. We are often shouted at, called names and bullied when we are out and about in the streets. ARC Scotland has helped us.
I have seen a difference since beginning my SVQ, it gives you time to stand back and reflect on your practice and have a better understanding of why we do things.
The work that People First and ARC are doing provides direct feedback from people with learning disabilities … it is hugely powerful and can be fed-back to the people who can change things.
