Since 1998 Talkback has been meeting, talking and working with people with learning disabilities. We support people to think about how their life looks, how they would like their life to look and in doing so, find out what’s missing. Some groups of people often get left out. People with high individual support needs, people from different cultural backgrounds, young people and people who don’t use any services are often treated as if their voice is not important. Talkback makes sure that this doesn’t happen.
Talkback and self-advocacy help people to build self-esteem, confidence and have more say and control over their own lives. It’s all about:
- knowing yourself better
- understanding others better
- being able to question and learn
- being able to listen
- being able to say what you think
Talkback is user led and therefore knows what life looks like when you have a learning disability. People with a learning disability have their own voice. Talkback helps people find that voice.
