User groups: People with learning difficulties or disabilities

Region: National

Most people with learning disabilities live in a world where decisions that affect them are made by non-learning disabled people. We believe people with learning disabilities are the experts on the changes they need to lead a good quality of life and to get equal access to employment, healthcare, housing, community involvement and information they can understand. CHANGE is built on this belief. The majority of our committee are Disabled People, including people with learning disabilities. We employ experts with learning disabilities in leadership roles. Our skilled volunteers with learning disabilities participate actively to help deliver our services, including: creating bespoke, accessible information in Easy Read and video formats for clients; producing resources to make information accessible for people with learning disabilities; providing training courses to support both people with learning disabilities and organisations and businesses that want to become more accessible and inclusive for people with learning disabilities; and working in partnership on a variety of projects funded by external organisations and government departments that influence national policy, facilitate systemic change and open opportunities for the inclusion of people with learning disabilities.
