Self Advocacy 2

The Big Group

BIG stands for Being Involved Group and it is a self-advocacy group for people with a learning disability.

We discuss all issues to do with our lives, including health, housing and services.

It started with the government White Paper, ‘Valuing People’, which outlines how people with a learning disability have been excluded but should in the future be provided with the opportunity to live full and independent lives as part of the community.

What is self-advocacy?

It is people like us speaking up for ourselves. People with a learning disability can make a real difference to services and how they are delivered.

Self-advocacy can transform the lives of people with a learning disability to help us to express our wishes and aspirations and to make real choices.
