We are an independent charity providing advocacy mainly for people with learning disabilities. We help people develop self-advocacy skills and support peer advocates in campaigning for change. Our work enables people to have more control over their lives and to make the changes that they wish to.
Co-op Local Community Fund
We have been chosen again as on of the local causes for the Co-op Local Community Fund. Co-op members can support us by purchasing Co-op branded goods and choosing us as their local cause to receive 1% of what they spend. Find out more at coop.co.uk/membership.
New Heritage Project
We are delighted to have been awarded a grant of £60,600 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for an exciting project discovering and recording the history and stories of people with learning disabilities in Solihull.
The project, called “Hidden Lives Remembered”, has been made possible by money raised by National Lottery players and over 18 months will see people with learning disabilities finding out about the lives and experiences of those who until 30 years ago had lived most of their lives in long-stay hospitals and residential homes with little contact with the wider community.
