Welcome to Together Matters
Together Matters is an organisation built on the belief that talking and working together helps to make better things happen in the lives of people with learning disabilities and their families.
Together Matters works alongside people with learning disabilities, their families, practitioners, organisations that provide support, self advocacy groups and anyone else interested in the work we are doing.
Together Matters offers fresh ideas, sound knowledge, easy to use resources and skills to provide training and service development. Our aim is to challenge and complement existing support and services, making the best use of things that work and overcoming those that prevent people having a good life.
Our website suggests how we can help you in four key areas:
- Planning for the future (for people with learning disabilities and their families)
- Checking the quality of support
- Good support for older people with learning disabilities
- People with learning disabilities as carers
Do you have any questions or need further information?
“When mum showed me the I’m Thinking Ahead thing I thought great – I started on the housing bit straight away, its brilliant I can do it on my laptop. I really want to leave home and this is helping me think about the stuff. I can see now there’s lots I need to do but I am going to do it and I am going to get my own place.” – George
