The Same as You (Scottish Government, 2000) highlighted the need for a wholesale shift in thinking and approach to services for people with learning disabilities. The Keys to Life (Scottish Government, 2013) recognised that further work was required to reach the aspirations of a truly person-centred network of service provision and opportunities.

Support for Health and Social Care Learning Disability Day Support Services
We work in partnership with HSCP project teams to:
- gather and provide insights into different approaches to review and design of services
- develop and test tools to support you to thoroughly understand the needs of supported people, carers to inform future service design
- support exploration and define the issues in your local context
- provide opportunities to meet and learn from peer teams throughout Scotland
- share collaborative learning from different models of day support
- provide access to team coaching support
- host a space to share innovation, and
- influence national organisations.
You can still get involved by:
- attending and participate in collaborative national learning events
- taking part in the collaborative national connections sessions
- joining collaborative randomised coffee trials where you can meet others in the Collaborative
- requesting a facilitated session for your service team/staff by completing the Collaborative Enquiry Form
- applying the tools we have used in a local context:
- using the Ladder of Co-production to engage with stakeholders and assess what level of participation takes place
- mapping your existing data and reflecting on how service user outcomes are being met
- using a behavioural model to identify the individual, social and material world factors that affect day service provision and outcomes
- gathering insights from stakeholders by using a Problem Trees approach
- using Personas to reflect on whether user outcomes are being met in your services
- using User Journey Mapping to explore and understand the experiences of people who access your services,
- examining service expectations from stakeholders through the User Outcomes tool, and
- using Red Rules versus Blue Rules Framework to examine and unlock barriers to development.
