Learning Disability, Autism and Neurodiversity Bill - Lived Experience Advisory Panel: recruitment information - easy read

We are looking to recruit neurodivergent people to take part in a panel that will help us design an inclusive consultation for a new proposed bill.

Who can apply

Anyone who identifies as having a Learning Disability or as being Autistic or Neurodivergent can apply for the panel.

People do not need to be officially diagnosed with a Learning Disability or Autism to apply.

Panel members will be there to talk about their own experiences and will not be there to talk about the views of any groups or organisations they are part of.

People that help to run or have a job in any organisation that has a view on the Bill or the commissioner will not be allowed to apply to be on the panel.

These people should help the Scottish Government with the Bill through their organisation instead.

If someone is a volunteer for an organisation or is a member who does not do paid work for them they can still apply for the panel.

The Scottish Government wants to make sure that many different people from different backgrounds can help to develop the Bill.

The Scottish Government wants to use the panel to make sure they hear from people in Scotland they would not normally hear from.

The Scottish Government also wants to use the panel to hear the views of experts who might be involved with an organisation but do not work for them or lead them in any way.
