Project: Peer Advocacy


Community Works 4U -
Giving a community voice to people with disabilities


The Peer Advocacy project:


We have trained young people with LDs to be Peer Advocates at a residential home for adults with PMLD. The Peer Advocates are now able to:

Give their own views on the environment and culture at the home

Speak up for people with PMLD

Identify good and bad practice

Share interests and experiences

Feel they were shaping and improving services


The work is continuing with Peer Advocates working with us to create a Code of Practice for Peer Advocacy, and gain the skills to become trainers of other Peer Advocates.

Watch this space for more information on Peer Advocacy training available in the future.
