Real Roles

Thinking back to the Heart 'n Soul event, another aspect of their work that inspired me was their work in promoting the creation of 'Real Roles' for people with learning disabilities across sectors. The pioneering work of Heart 'n Soul in employing people with learning disabilities in equal, paid jobs within their organisation and on their events is now being looked to by local authorities and other national agencies as a model of best practice. To me this work, along with their promotion of learning disabled arts practitioners, is really important in changing the way our society views people with learning disabilities.
