LIVING IT UP EVENTS GALLERY
Going out to see bands, clubbing, or seeing friends is part of everyday life for lots of people. However, if you have a learning disability you may need support to do this. Stay Up Late charity have found that lots of people with learning disabilities aren’t able to lead full and active social lives because their support workers finish at 10pm. Meaning lots of people with learning disabilities leave events at 9pm.
We agree, and passionately believe that people with learning disabilities have the right to stay up late and have some fun. Our projects have grown around this ethos. Our projects have recently been promoting the Stay Up Late #NoBedtimes campaign to continue to support people with a learning disability to fight for the right to choose their own bedtimes.
Anyone who attends Living It Up Events is welcome to join the Committee meetings which are held twice a year. We value all contributions and members are encouraged to talk about all aspects of how we run our projects. If you would like to get involved, please get in touch.
