My Life My Choice

Together with My Life, My Choice, we are producing an accessible resource for people with learning disabilities who have been placed in long stay hospitals either unnecessarily or for too long. It aims to inform them about what rights they have and how to use them to challenge their stay.

My Life My Choice is a self-advocacy organisation for adults with a learning disability. Their vision is a world where people with a learning disability are treated without prejudice and can have choice and control over their own lives.

A quote from Ady Chappell, My Life My Choice Champion about the resource:

“Now that we’ve got this Easy Read document people will know their rights without having to worry about knowing the jargon and long words. We can take it when we go and visit people from our area stuck in long stay hospitals away from where they live. We will show people how to use the guide to make sure their rights are met. It will be very effective and help make sure people are out of hospital and back home soon!”
