Speaking Up! project

We have fantastic news! Poole Forum has been awarded funding from the Big Lottery Fund to deliver our Speaking Up! project.

We will use this funding to deliver Speaking Up! workshops for people with learning disabilities who may live in or attend a variety of different settings such as residential homes, supported living, Shared Lives, day centres or day opportunities.

We want people who take part in the project to have the opportunity to speak up about their needs in services and also to be more involved in their local communities.

Our workshops will be designed to empower people to speak up for themselves. We hope to strengthen the voice of people with learning disabilities in Poole and help them to make changes that both improve and enhance their quality of life.

Please read this leaflet to find out more about the project. If you are interested in taking part please contact us.
