Delivery Organisations of the Month - The British Institute of Learning Disabilities , Dyslexia Action and The National Autistic Society
In February 2013, 3SC were commissioned by the Ministry of Justice to improve support for offenders with Learning Difficulties and Disabilities (LDD). 3SC are delighted to be working with the British Institute of Learning Disabilities (BILD), Dyslexia Action and the National Autistic Society to identify good practice in the delivery of interventions for professionals working in the Criminal Justice System. This is a real team effort so we wanted to recognise all three delivery organisations this month.
Whilst there is no quantification of the number of people with LDD in the criminal justice system, there are consistent reports of a significant proportion of offenders with low levels of literacy, numeracy and people with English as a second language.
