we are the voice of experience

Welcome to The Good Life Group

 

Hello, and welcome to the home of the Good Life Group! We are a group of adults with learning disabilities who have been working together since 1999 to make life better for people with learning disabilities in West Dunbartonshire, and in the whole of Scotland.

On this site you’ll be able to find out about all the things we do. Choose where you’d like to go by clicking on one of the icons on the left hand side.

Or watch this DVD clip to find out a little about who we are and what we do.

If you go to About Us you can find out about the history of the group – including information about the campaigns, projects and committees we’re involved in. You’ll also meet some of our members, and find out why they joined the group and what they get out of it.  We’ve just had our latest Annual General Meeting, and you’ll find a report about that, too.  If you want to find out about all the training we’ve been doing, and the events and conferences we’ve attended, go to the Newsletter page for all the latest news.

Find out how we can help your organisation by clicking on Training and Professional Services. We offer a range of programmes to help service providers improve their services to people with learning disabilities.

One of the best workshops I’ve attended in 28 years working in General Practice.

We use a lively training method based on Forum Theatre, and we’ve trained staff in a whole range of organisations across Scotland. You’ll also find out about the research we do, see reports on previous programmes, and learn what our customers think of our courses – here’s a taster:

Our Newsletter page will update you on what we’ve been doing lately, and the Events page will keep you informed of what’s coming up.
