Speakup Self Advocacy Limited

Established in 1988, Speakup is a leading national self advocacy organisation run by and for people with a learning disability, celebrating 21years supporting people to make decisions and speaking up on behalf of others. We run powerful group, peer and self advocacy forums and focus groups supporting people to give their ideas and opinions to encourage better services by 'Valuing People Now. '
We produce friendly accessible information to give people real opportunities to understand issues and make informed choices through the production of broadcast standard DVD’s, easy read presentations on important acts such as the Mental Capacity Act and easier read reports.
Locally, 51 people with learning disabilities work or volunteer at Speakup to produce the accessible information. Running Monday to Friday, we also work late nights and weekends to meet deadlines. Recent work in partnership with Diabetes Uk was to produce DVD about type 2 Diabetes.
