Our Way self advocacy (formerly Wyre
speaking up and breaking down barriers
Our Way is a charity set up and run by people who have learning
disabilities. The aim of Our Way is to support people to join a self advocacy
group to talk about issues important to them. We support and encourage
people to challenge the barriers that prevent them from having the same
opportunities in life that many of us take for granted.
Self Advocacy means:
Speaking up for yourself and having your say
Talking about problems like discrimination
Having more control over your life
Making big decisions
This is what self advocacy means to the people in the groups:-
"Doing things our way"
"Making friends and
"Doing things we want
and trying new things"
"Talking about problems
"Respecting and trusting
"Sharing our feelings"
Volunteers help Our Way self advocacy workers to support
the groups. Our funding comes from a variety of trusts, local authorities,
and private organisations.
We are very grateful to Mend My Computer for supporting
us this year and helping to sort out our computers.
