Change is an organisation led by Disabled People. The power and the voice of people with learning disabilities (LD) is at the heart of everything they do. Their mission is to create opportunities for people with LD to become empowered citizens who can succeed, grow and participate equally in the community. Their services include training and resources and they have a number of projects on the go including parenting projects where they have created a range of easy read books to support parents with LD.

One very useful resource which they have produced is the Communication Card. Click here to access. It enables you to record how you communicate and the best way to contact you. You can use this to help any professionals you come into contact with such as your doctor or teacher. If you do not have access to the internet, call 01132 426619.
