This is a self-advocacy project supporting adults with learning difficulties to speak up for themselves. Self-advocates get together every week to practice speaking up, meet with friends, learn new skills and support one another.
Self-advocates also share their views and ideas on important issues such as transport, health, housing, employment, education and leisure. This information helps organisations improve their services so that people can enjoy a better quality life.
This group meets monthly and is aimed at women with a learning difficulty. It’s a great opportunity to meet together in a safe place to discuss issues and concerns relevant to women. However we also enjoy pampering sessions, coffee and cake, bake offs and much more!
“I love this group! Chatting with people I trust about my health has been really helpful. But I can’t wait for our next coffee shop trip!”

Young people also share their views and ideas about issues important to them. This information helps organisations provide better support and services for children and young people.
