About us

Our needs and wants

Father holding child

We need:

  • to know that all our needs are being met with different organisations working together
  • the chance to have our say in meetings, groups and committees
  • to know that organisations believe that people with learning difficulties can be good parents
  • to know that organisations will respect us and listen to our views how we think children should be brought up
