Self advocacy for people with a learning difficulty

We support people to gain confidence and learn how to speak up for themselves. We do this through group meetings and events:

  • monthly meeting for people who live independently
  • monthly meeting for people in supported living
  • social events
  • lads group
  • ladies group
  • young adults group
  • open events where more people can speak up about important issues
  • the A team – training people to keep themselves safe
  • the Respect campaign – raising awareness about hate crime towards people with learning difficulties

The group members have the power! They are supported to make decisions and plans about their groups.

We don’t just talk! We use lots of fun ways to help people speak up, like games, role play, film, podcasts and accessible, interactive workshops.

We think accessible information is really important.

We have an easy read service – please click here to find out more.
