The Good Life Group is a COSLA award-winning group of adults with learning disabilities who came together to take action to make life better for themselves and their peers. They have evolved into a focused, user-driven action group, delivering innovative, on-going training programmes for health and social care professionals, people who use services and carers all over Scotland.
