Sheltered workshops and work based disability support for adults with ID and with autism
Adequate skilled workforce is required to support adults with intellectual disabilities and or ASD to find and sustain employment, whether part time or full time. I think sheltered workshops in some form should be brought back, that offer day services where people with disabilities can participate in the production of goods and services to the best of their abilities. There are virtually no day services any more and the quality of many people's lives is more impoverished as a result.
Why the contribution is important
The right to particpiate in meaningful day time activities is fundamental to our well being and people with disabilities such as ASD and ID should not be deprived of this opportunitypurely because they need extra ongoing support to access these activities.
