Treat me well: campaigning with people with a learning disability

Eve Jackson, Victoria Wright and Youssef Abidat (Mencap)

Room: Douglas Price

Eve, Victoria and Youssef will outline how Mencap involves campaigners with a learning disability in the design, development and delivery of their campaigns. Using the example of Mencap’s current Treat me well campaign, aiming to transform how people with a learning disability are treated in hospital, they will give an overview of Mencap’s long experience of putting the people they work with at the heart of their organisation.
