My Life My Way - Enabling Inclusion and Communities

Projects

Awards for All Project - Speaking up loud and proud

Self-advocacy groups enable people with learning disabilities to speak up for themselves and work to improve the lives of their members.  However from our work with local self-advocacy groups we know that young people with learning disabilities are rarely engaging with self-advocacy.  This is a time in their lives when they are transitioning from children’s to adult’s services.  In addition, some young people are ending up in mental health Assessment and Treatment Units.  Undoubtedly they would find access to self-advocacy extremely beneficial.

This project is delivering 5 training sessions to 12 young people with learning disabilities age 14-25 to begin to develop key self-advocacy skills.
