We visited people with learning disabilities who get help from the charity Talkback, as part of a ‘Seldom Heard’ project to ensure people have a say over local services.
People with learning disabilities told us they wanted:
- Easy-read leaflets about services and for use during appointments
- To know about their right to ask for reasonable adjustments
- More consideration given to the needs of their carers
Talkback told us they wanted people to have the right support, tailored communication, and opportunities to take part in meaningful activities.
