Having collected over 5,000 signatures, our petition to make learning disability awareness training mandatory throughout the NHS in Wales was debated in the Senedd on November 6th 2019.

The debate was described by the Chair of the Debate committee as being the most positive ever heard in the Chamber, as the proposal was unanimously passed by all AMs present.

Update – October 2020

The framework for the mandatory learning disability awareness training is still in the process of being reviewed.  It has been confirmed that there will be a tiered approach to the training, depending on the level of contact the healthcare worker will have with patients with learning disabilities, and it will be named after Paul as his legacy.
