Helping to make self-advocacy stronger

Evidence

We have had help from the Academics Network to start this part of our work.

Jan Walmsley has done a summary of what we know about self advocacy from what self advocates and researchers have said

You can see that here

Jan also started a list of the research on self-advocacy and what difference it makes. We are sharing this so everyone can share what they know about evidence and impact to help make arguments for self-advocacy or help people (like funders) understand it

You can download that here

 

Working together

The North West self advocate regional forum are hosting a national self advocacy convention. Learning Disability England are helping to make that happen. You can find out more here
