Abstract

This article describes a project in which people with intellectual disabilities and their families, and care staff, were taught how to collaborate in the improvement of services. After forming teams, and with the support of academic supervisors and service-based mentors, they undertook a university module based on co-operative learning about services. The process was found to be effective in translating legislation and policy into practice, and was appreciated by those who took part
