This paper sets out the impact of Grapevine's work for people with learning disabilities and their families.
"Being connected to other people, having friends and people you can count on, playing a useful role in life, being a citizen – these are the things that make life worthwhile and, for most people, they are free. But people who have a learning disability often need some support to get a life connected to others – people who will help them to develop the strength and skills to cope with life’s ups and downs. And that help is available in communities if we know how to find it.
This is Grapevine’s speciality. Building on the strengths of individuals and the positive things in communities is the heart of our approach."
