Description

David Thompson has had a diverse career in health and social care, covering direct work, research, policy and practice development. After training to be a teacher of children with learning disabilities, he spent over 10 years providing sex education to people with learning disabilities. This work was the focus of his PhD. He subsequently broadened his interests in the lives of people with learning disabilities to include ageing, support for family carers and advocacy. He was heavily involved in the implementation of the Mental Capacity Act (2005) for the Department of Health in England, which included developing the Independent Mental Capacity Advocate role for the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards. Before relocating to Australia with his civil partner in 2016, he was vice-chair of the Ann Craft Trust.
