A new research initiative from the University of Sheffield hopes to address disability issues in a way that directly involves the consumers. As Alex McClimens explains…
When Sheffield Citizen Advocacy first began in 1984, the interests of those people described as having a learning disability were not core to the business. However, it quickly became apparent that this group needed more dedicated input and so Speaking Up For Action! (SUFA) evolved as the self-advocacy wing of the organisation.
