NHS England has commissioned Changing Our Lives to develop a digital passport for people with learning disabilities who have postural care difficulties. It is well evidenced that for too many people with learning disabilities their posture can limit their quality of life, having a negative impact on their ability to interact with others and be part of their local community. However, for some individuals such as those with additional physical disabilities or health conditions poor posture can be a ‘silent killer’.

The passport is currently in development. It is family led, and will contain both photographs and videos of the person, illustrating how best to support them. It is not intended to replace any hospital passport the person may have as it is designed specifically for the target audience of people with the label profound and multiple learning disabilities.
