“In 2017, Reach members got involved in Stoke-on-Trent’s bid to be City of Culture 2021. Staffordshire University worked with Reach, an advocacy group for people with learning disabilities, supported by Asist, to train 10 peer researchers to help understand the barriers for people with learning disabilities when accessing mainstream arts and culture. In total they gathered feedback from 82 people with learning disabilities from across Stoke-on-Trent.
We have produced two reports which outline the findings and both are here for you to share and download.”
