Welcome to Make The Connection
Welcome to our website. We are the ‘Make the Connection’ international project.
The UN Convention on the Rights of Disabled Persons says in Article 9, 21 and 24 that all disabled people have a right to information, to communicate, to express themselves and to participate in society.
The organisations in this project partnership strongly believe in assisting all individuals with a learning disability to be able to exercise these rights. Almost all people are able to express their wishes, their choices, their emotions in some way. The challenge is to find the key to help this happen.
These pages will describe what the project is doing to help people with a learning disability to express themselves.
