VIDEO: Standing up for people with learning disabilities

I recently met the Kent Learning Disability Partnership Board, who told me that they often find the information the Government sends them confusing. 

I asked Disabilities Minister Justin Tomlinson what he is doing to make his department's communications easier to understand.

He told me that, on 14 January, he launched a taskforce that included the Royal National Institute of Blind People, the British Deaf Association, Action on Hearing Loss, the National Federation for the Blind, People First, the British Institute of Learning Disabilities, Sense and Mencap to look at this issue.

He invited me to join the taskforce, and of course I am delighted to do that. 

I will make sure that the voice of people with learning disabilities is heard in Government.
