Keys to Citizenship was the nationally acclaimed concept conceived by Simon Duffy and published as a guide to getting good support for people with learning disabilities in 2003. The principles were taken on by many working alongside people with learning disabilities and increasingly other groups of people have found that its principles apply equally to everyone. It was a book that helped people to improve people’s lives. It was at the forefront of developing true citizenship for all.
In 2014 Simon Duffy and Wendy Perez published a revised and accessible version of Keys to Citizenship called Citizenship for All. Importantly the new model for Keys added a seventh key - Love.
Sadly, more than ten years on, too many people with disabilities are still being abused, and are still not getting the chance to be full citizens enjoying great lives. We strongly believe this is not acceptable. So in 2014 Simon Duffy, Wendy Perez, members of Cornwall People First, Gary Kent from New Key and Sam Sly came together to start thinking about how Keys to Citizenship could once again be pivotal to improving people’s lives and gaining full citizenship.
