Sharing neurodivergent voices

As part of our self advocacy service, we have created the opportunity for neurodivergent people in Tees Valley to share their lived experience. We hold a weekly self-advocacy group, where members are invited to discuss various topics that affect us. We regularly invite outside services, such as Safer Communities and Arch, to the group to discuss our experiences and work with them to improve their services for neurodivergent individuals. 

We are currently piloting a ‘human library,’ where agencies and services arrange for a unique approach to training by discussing social needs directly with our service users, as a way of working with local agencies to enhance their services.
