Manchester People First is a self-advocacy group for people aged over 18 with a learning disability who live in Manchester.
We support people to speak up for themselves so they can have a bigger say in how their lives are lived. We do this by offering training to our members and organisations who work with adults with a learning disability. We give our members somewhere of their own to meet their peers, learn and socialise.
We were started 20 years ago by people with learning disabilities themselves and today have over 500 members. We are independent of social care services.
