It is planned that
LBBill will go before parliament
This Bill, #LBBill, aims
to shift the power into the hands of the disabled person and their
families, so in the future, if the State decides the person cannot
live in their own home, they must seek court permission to carry out
their plan. We hope, this law will also help all those people currently
trapped in institutions as a means of being released from their detention,
into a home of their own.
A Facebook page has been
set up: #LBBill, as a meeting space to discuss plans to turn the idea
of a Bill that has a statutory assumption that a person lives in their
own home (of their choice) into a reality. Over 1000 people have joined
the group so the bill is truly crowd-sourced!
