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.
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.
We are looking for new members for our Advisory Board
SAtA has an Advisory Board of service users that meets with our CEO every month to talk about our services and how we can improve and develop them. We have 6 members at the moment but we are looking for more. Do you or someone you know want to help us make advocacy for people with learning disabilities better?
