The article presents the author's views on the Valuing People Now policy paper. He says that it sets out a vision for the 21st century and positions people with learning disabilities securely at the heart of their care. He states that the strategy will radically improve services with the support of the concerned agencies. He says it is encouraging to see the policy focusing on employment, housing, and health care, on groups that have traditionally been missed or excluded from policies.
