Stanmore based charity Norwood goes digital for national campaign
People helped by a charity took to social media this week to challenge assumptions about those with learning disabilities.
Adults and children supported by the charity Norwood in Harrow took part in the digital campaign as part of National Learning Disability Week 2014.
The organisation, based in Stanmore, provides residential, supported living and employment services for people with disabilities.
Throughout the week, people have been swapping their stories about achievements in their lives including first jobs and first votes.
Norwood director of operations Angela Duce said: "This campaign shows that people with learning disabilities value exactly the same things as those without.
“Everyone has the right to enjoy spending time with their friends, learn a new skill, exercise their right to vote or find a job they love.
“At Norwood we believe it’s important that everyone we support gets to experience their own milestone moments."
