Giving people with learning disabilities a voice
Our vision is a world where people with learning disabilities have the same rights, choice and control over their lives as everyone else.
Speak Out has been an independent advocacy charity in Brighton and Hove since 1994. We make sure that people with learning disabilities can speak up and take action about the things that matter to them.
What is a learning disability?
Learning disability is a term that refers to individuals who find it hard to:
- undertake everyday tasks
A learning disability is a lifelong condition. Many people with a learning disability will need support to live as independently as possible.
Learning disability doesn't include specific learning difficulties like dyspraxia or dyslexia. It doesn't include autism either, although lots of people with autism also have a learning disability.
