Our History Our Voice

Our History Our Voice is a project documenting and celebrating the history of Speak Out. For 25 years Speak Out has been providing important advocacy services to people with learning disabilities enabling them to have a voice and speak up about their lives, address challenges they face and take an active part in community life.

Our History Our Voice has been led by a research group made up of Speak Out service users. The research group recorded people’s memories and the impact Speak Out has had on their lives. The stories are told through oral history interviews and art and poetry workshops.


The history project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

We would like to thank the National Lottery players for making this possible.
