Further information about this work

This work fulfils part of the Independent Living in Scotland Programme priorities contained within the programme work plan.

Members from the Independent Living in Scotland Programme partnership, Disabled People's Organisations and other representatives from the public sector and third sector, in co-production with the Improvement Service, developed this document.

The document is shaped by an Inclusive Communication Working Group, formed to oversee this project, and from additional consultation to encapsulate a wider network, held between December 2010 and February 2011.

The consultation was responded to by service users with a range of communication support needs, as well as service providers and impairment groups. A full consultation report is available upon request.
