Learning Disability Devon Designed by people with a learning disability for people with a learning disability

About the Citizenship Project

  • The Devon Learning Disability Partnership Board Citizenship Project is being run by Devon People First.

  • Devon People First will be working with people in communities to empower them to enact their rights to become active citizens, so that people with a learning disability are able to access their community and have the same opportunities as everyone else.

  • Devon People First will be working with people with a learning disability to put together¬† an easy-read Citizenship Information pack.

  • They will also be supporting local services and businesses to understand the needs and rights of people with a learning disability in their community.

  • Updates on the project will be posted on this website.

  • The 7 keys to citizenship

    There are 7 keys to Citizenship.

    Click here to look at each key.

  • The project will begin in April 2019 and Devon People First will design an easy read form which people can complete either on their own or with help from Devon People First.

  • We will begin the project in Crediton where we will meet people with learning disabilities to explain about Citizenship, the project and also look at and help people fill in the easy read form. The form is about what people think is important to them in their community.

  • The information people give us through the forms and through talking to us will help us create the easy read information pack.

    The pack will have all the local community information needed to help people be part of their community and become active citizens.

  • Once the information pack is completed it will be added to this Devon Learning Disability easy read website for people to view or download.

    When the first information pack is completed it will be easier to create information packs for different local towns in Devon.
