Burton Street Foundation used their #SpeakUp Small Grant to ask their clients, people with mild/ moderate learning difficulties, about their experience of their local GP surgery.
Speech bubble saying

Our #SpeakUp small grants scheme awards funding to local community, voluntary, or not-for-profit groups, enabling them to engage with their communities about what matters to them. 

Recommendations from the report:

  • Increase the uptake of annual health checks by adults with learning disabilities by offering those checks at community locations such as Burton Street.
  • Learning disability charities and statutory services should work in partnership to educate adults with learning disabilities about their own health.
