Employment Update September 2019

Walk it like you talk it – Are you employing people?

The Walk it like you talk campaign was set up by Learning Disability England self-advocacy Member, My Life My Choice.

The campaign says support organisations should be employing more people with learning disabilities.

We support the campaign and we asked Learning Disability England members if they will support it

14 organisation members said they are supporting the campaign and already employ people with learning disabilities.

Some also told us about other work they are doing to employ people.

We hope other members will sign up soon and employ people with learning disabilities as at least 1% of their workforce.

We have written a short report on the campaign, how you can sign up and the work some members wanted to share. You can read it here or download it below
