Families – this will be used throughout the document to mean parents, carers and other family members living with and supporting a person with a learning disability. It does not mean a carer receiving payment for providing care as part of employment.
Inclusion – this means people with a learning disability being supported to participate in their local community in a meaningful and appropriate way, including socialising with friends of their choosing and with people without learning disabilities.
