Gaps

People were concerned that the plan did not look at some other disabilities or problems disabled people may have.

Learning diasability team

These are below.

The plan did not do enough to help people with mental health or hidden disabilities.

The plan did not do enough to help vulnerable disabled children and young people. People thought that dealing with problems that they have at a young age might help them when they are older.

Group of disabled children and young people

The plan did very little to improve education available for both disabled adults and children. Some people thought that children should be taught disability awareness at school. This might stop discrimination against disabled people.

College

Some people thought that there was not enough focus on the joining up of social care and health care. Some people thought that health would be the most important part of the 2 services and social care would be less important. People thought that services given by social care would be affected. This could mean less importance is given to support from social care that disabled people get to live independent lives.

Health and Social Care Act 2012

The plan did not do enough to improve transition services for disabled children and adults. This was most important for vulnerable children.

Transition

The plan should focus more on the right to a social and family life.

The plan did not do enough to promote social inclusion.

The plan made no mention to access to civic and political life for disabled people.

Checklist

The access to justice section should include civil justice.
