More about the project

What is the social/environmental problem/issue that this project will address?
Barriers faced by people with learning disabilities in the community, lack of awareness of learning disability issues that contribute to isolation and poor health and wellbeing/quality of life.
Can you give us some statistics on this problem?
What we want you to focus on is looking at photographs of people enjoying life, come and talk to people at the club, join in at the festival and see Bubble Club in action. Gather your own statistics on how many happy faces you can see.
What is your solution?
Ensuring that people with learning disabilities are involved in the design, delivery, participation and evaluation of a main stream local community festival. Raising awareness in the wider community of the ability and valuable contribution to community life that people with learning disabilities make and should be supported to continue to provide.
How will you deliver this?
Bottom up approach, asking people, including people, supporting people with accessible information and learning opportunities to enable choice, control and informed decision making. To manage a culture within the Map Squad and Bubble Club which is focussed on person centred delivery.

Our track record

Started in 1998 by four people with learning disabilities from a day centre, we spent the first 18 months meeting two hours a week with a carrier bag, one note pad and pen. Thirteen years later we are a Company Ltd By Guarantee with a track record in delivering community based projects and small income generating enterprises, led by people with learning disabilities with support for the wider community. Check out our website www.mapsquad.org
