What people with a learning disability say

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

“People with a learning disability aren’t treated fairly and I don’t think that’s right.” - James. 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"I feel that we get overlooked and patronised. We are not seen as individuals; we're seen almost like an ornament or a statue. I think we get overlooked by politicians and they don't seem to care about our feelings." - Damien.

"There were a lot of people with a disability who wanted to find work but didn't have the right support to do it"

“We need to support them through the whole process...
You also get sanctioned easily and then there is lots of paperwork and scrambling around" 
- Kerry

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’ve had enough

People with a learning disability have had enough of being ignored, mistreated, looked down on, treated like children - and sometimes, even locked away. 

Had enough of services that overlook us instead of supporting us. 

Had enough of schools and workplaces that don’t include us, letting our potential be wasted. 

And had enough of people who mock or bully us.
