A learning disability charity, Talkback, has launched a young people’s ‘Health Passport’ to aid communication during appointments.

The Health Passport is an initiative made for, and with, people with learning disabilities, to help get across their feelings, needs, or pain levels – which they might find difficult to describe - during appointments with health professionals.

Following a successful roll-out of the Health Passports for adults, Talkback have now started providing them to young people with learning disabilities, aged 14 and up.

The passports are free to young people in Reading and West Berkshire. Email the charity at or telephone 01494 434448.
