DRIVING UP QUALITY
After the shocking abuse of people with learning disabilities at Winterbourne View, the government and leading organisations launched the Driving Up Quality Code.
What the code aims to do:
Drive up quality in services for people with learning disabilities that go beyond minimum standards
Create and build a passion in the learning disability sector to provide high quality, values-led services
