Who We Are
CHANGE is a leading national equal rights organisation led by Disabled People.
We believe that people with learning disabilities should have the same rights and choices as everybody else
At CHANGE we practice what we preach. People with learning disabilities are employed on equal wages. We have responsibility for our own work. This means we have the power to change things that affect us.
Volunteers with learning disabilities are also important at CHANGE. Volunteers work in different areas, including making information easy to understand.
We want people to listen to us. People with learning disabilities want:
Equal Rights – such as the right to have exciting jobs on equal wages, to have a relationship and be a parent, or to plan for the future
Choices – about things like housing, parenting and health
Information and services that are easy to understand – using easy words, no jargon and lots of pictures to help show what the words mean
Respect for all people with learning disabilities – with better attitudes and the right support and advice
CHANGE works with other people and organisations to try to make sure people with learning disabilities can have all of these things.
