The Knowsley Big Group

BIG GroupBIG stands for Being Involved Group and it is self-advocacy group for people with a learning disability in Knowsley.

As a dynamic group they discuss lots of issues to do with their lives, including health, housing and services and they are supported by local charity Knowsley Disability Concern.

It started with the government White Paper, ‘Valuing People’, which outlines how people with a learning disability have been excluded but should in the future be provided with the opportunity to live full and independent lives as part of the community.
