Location: Portadown, Ulster
Campaign: To encourage others not to underestimate people with learning disabilities

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:
