P-05-892 Appoint a Learning Disability Commissioner for Wales

 

This petition was submitted by Cardiff People First having collected a 145 signatures online and 423 on paper – a total of 568 signatures.

 

Text of Petition   

We call on the National Assembly for Wales to appoint a Learning Disability Commissioner for Wales. This must be a person with a learning disability.

 

They are more reports of abuse of people with a learning disability in England again. Research also shows that people with a learning disability get unequal healthcare and die up to 20 years earlier than others. It's 50 years since the Ely Hospital report showed abuse and led to the closure of these institutions. As the organisation set up by people leaving Ely, we believe it is time that we had someone to champion our rights for us at a Welsh level.
