The Keys to Life - Scotland's Learning Disability Strategy
Launched in 2013, the Keys to Life builds on the success of 'The Same As You?', the previous strategy which was published in 2000 following a review of services for people with learning disabilities.
In 2010, a two-year evaluation, involving the detailed participation from people with learning disabilities and their carers, began to assess what progress had been made and what needed to be achieved. From these findings, key themes were decided and debated by a national Learning Disability Strategy group who discussed key themes and agreed broader responses which have formed 'The Keys to Life - Improving Quality of Life for People with Learning Disabilities'.
The emphasis of this 10-year strategy is on health. There are over 50 recommendations, the majority of which are aimed at health.
