Sent to my MP, with copies to friends and family to ask that they do likewise:

Dear MP


Congratulations on your election.


I am writing to ask you if you would kindly consider sponsoring the Disabled People (Community Inclusion) Bill 2015 (‘LBBill’), should you gain a high position in the ballot for Private Members’ Bills.  Otherwise, please would you encourage and support your colleagues higher up the ballot to do the same.  The Bill aims to build on the Care Act and on the post-Winterbourne work, in order to ensure that no disabled people are forced into inappropriate living arrangements simply because no-one is responsible for ensuring that suitable homes are available.


The provisions of the Bill have been drafted by and with people with disabilities of all kinds and their families.  If passed, it will mean that that people with disabilities have the right to a home, not just a placement.  The current draft is available here:
For further information on the genesis, aims and progress of the Bill, please see the Bill website: https://lbbill.wordpress.com/. 

For an explanation of why the Bill is needed in addition to the Care Act, and why its provisions are more appropriate than the medically-oriented suggestions in the Green Paper ‘No voice unheard, no right ignored’, please see:
And for an explanation from some of the people who would benefit from this Bill, please see this short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZsAhQ0Hy6U 

Thank you for your time and I look forward to receiving a positive response from you.


Yours sincerely


Kara
