No Barriers Here is a unique and innovative approach to advance care planning for people with learning disabilities.
People with learning disabilities have been identified as a population that has been poorly served by palliative care and end of life care support. The collaboration between The Mary Stevens Hospice, Dudley Voices for Choice, and an Art Psychotherapist, is a great example of co-production in action, using an art therapy approach to open up conversations about death, dying and bereavement.
The panel was impressed by the collaboration with other partners, and the thought that had been given to the long term sustainability of the project - but it was the fact that the project was grounded in co-production with people with learning disabilities that made it stand out.
