Clare English will be speaking to people with learning disabilities; voices rarely heard on BBC Radio Scotland to hear how changing policies have impacted on their lives, everything from inclusion, education, employment, housing - all things that we take for granted but are often not available for some of our more vulnerable members of society.
Today, we hear from Mandy and her daughter Lauren who has a 'Lifelong learning Disability' which affected her schooling. It meant Mandy had to take drastic action to ensure Lauren got the support she needed just to get an education and ensure a brighter future.
