Self Advocacy Groups: What is happening in your area?


How are self advocacy groups/organisations run by people with learning difficulties getting on at the moment? What is happening in your area?


I am a support worker for 2 seld advocacy groups in the north east. Both groups are struggling so we are in the process of joining forces. Gateshead People and Talk 2 Us (South Tyneside) are working together with the aim of attacting more long term funding. A new name is yet to be decided
Both groups have their own Facebook pages at the moment if you want any more infromation.


Thanks for the information @Hazyjo It would be great if you could post the links to the Facebook groups.


Hi Neil, here is a link to the website for the organistion I am employed by

Any keen Facebookers can find our group’s pages Talk 2 Us and Gateshead People (in other words not sure how to share links outside Facebook)
