The PMLD Network  calls for partnership boards to include those with the most complex needs

June 2009

PMLD Network seminarThe PMLD Network have launched a ‘top tips’ guide to encourage partnership boards to include people with profound and multiple learning disabilities.
 
The guide which includes tips for partnership boards on making sure the needs of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities are represented was launched at the PMLD Network Seminar 2009 on 8th June.

National Director for Learning disabilities, Anne Williams, and co-National Director Scott Watkin attended the event to discuss the implications of Valuing People Now for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities. 

Beverley Dawkins, National Officer for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities at Mencap and Chair of the PMLD Network said:  ‘People with profound and multiple learning disabilities are among the most excluded and disadvantaged people in today's society.  All too often their needs are ignored.  We hope our top tips will help Partnership Boards ensure that they address the needs of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities in all aspects of their work.’
