Paula McGowan is a Multi Award-winning Activist who following the preventable death of her teenage son Oliver, has dedicated her life to campaigning for equality of Health and Social Care for Learning Disabled people and Autistic people. She is an Ambassador for several charities and organisations.
Paula launched a parliamentary petition asking for all doctors and nurses to receive mandatory training in Learning disability and Autism awareness. She ferociously argued that autism must be included. On 22 October 2018, her petition was debated and gained cross party support.
As a direct consequence Government announced that all NHS and Social Care Staff would receive The Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training in Learning Disability and Autism.
On the Oliver's Campaign website you can find support, resources and blogs.
