Connections that matter

This report tells you about the impact Grapevine has had on the lives of people with a learning disability and their families. It describes real stories of change achieved by local people for local people – with a little help.

What people can do for themselves and others is powerful. 

But using this power – even knowing you have it – is not easy if you are struggling with slow and unresponsive services, day-to-day hardship, low expectations and stigma. 

This is where Grapevine can help - working with people in their community to get over those obstacles and have stronger and safer lives.
