Speak Out’s 25 Years Christmas Appeal

For 25 years Brighton and Hove Speak Out has been supporting people with learning disabilities to have a voice and the same rights, choices and control over their lives as everyone else.

Brighton and Hove Speak Out has celebrated its 25th anniversary this year; 25 years of supporting people with learning disabilities to speak up for their needs, rights and entitlements in our society, and locally in Brighton and Hove.

We’ve made a lot of progress but people with learning disabilities continue to be marginalised and ignored. No more. As we approach Christmas; and our anniversary celebration in January 2020, we’re giving you the chance to support people with learning disabilities to live the lives they choose – and 25 reasons why you should.

People with learning disabilities have hopes for the future just like anyone else. Donate just a pound a day during advent to help us support them in achieving them.

Our Christmas Appeal will be launched on December 1st.
