Year of the Fix: 2015
Location: Cookstown, County Tyrone
Campaign: To show that it’s not okay to mistreat somebody for having a learning disability.

We are a group of young people from Cookstown, County Tyrone, who are tired of the way some people treat those with learning disabilities.

 

Most of the people in our team have a learning disability and have experienced discrimination or bullying because of it.

 

We are now working with Fixers to show bullies how their behaviour can negatively impact the lives of others.

  

Hopefully our campaign can promote greater understanding of those with learning disabilities, encouraging others to treat them with respect.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
