I have experienced stigma because people often underestimate what those with learning disabilities can achieve.
My friends and people I know have also had familiar experiences and we want to surprise people, change their perceptions and prove ourselves.
I want people to see me for who I am and not the disability.
We have created a billboard which has been displayed in Belfast. It has the message ‘see me for what I can do, not what I can’t.'
*Fixers works with learning disabled people of all ages.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
Mencap Northern Ireland
Shak & Natasha
Tilly and Bella
Mary-Anne White and Lucy Wills
Fixers is a project of the Public Service Broadcasting Trust, funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund, and featured on ITV.
