Big Society is all about people making things happen for themselves, which is what self-advocacy and My Life My Choice is all about. The award comes at a perfect time as we plan the launch of our latest campaign called We Will All Benefit which is focused on the huge contribution our members with learning disabilities make to society.
Richard West (pictured left at our AGM), a My Life My Choice trustee and DJ at our monthly Stingray Night Club has been made a Member of the Order of the British Empire in the Queen’s Birthday honours list.
Richard has worked hard for My Life My Choice and a wide range of other organisations to improve the lives of people with learning disabilities. Richard has a learning disability as well as being deaf. My Life My Choice are united in congratulating Richard for this wonderful news, and would like to thank him for all the work he has done with the learning disabled community in Oxfordshire and nationally. Find out more about the work he’s done in this LD Today article.
