Reach are an organisation, that branch off from Asist Advocacy Services in Stoke-on-Trent. They are an organisation run by and for people with learning disabilities to give others like them a voice. Over the years they have done much work to promote social change for people with disabilities by setting up their own parliament to mak sure everyone has a voice.

They have recently been informed that the REACH funding is at risk due to proposed funding changes. If the funding is cut then the organisation will no longer be able to run. This means, not only will Reach be unable to represent the views of themselves and others but they will also lose vital support from their own service. 

Most of the members use Reach as a social opportunity; which would not otherwise be available to them. They have made vital friendships and recieve vital peer support from others also using the service.

If this was stopped they would be unable to access their community effectively and would lack opportunity that most of us take for granted.

Please help us to pressurise local government and commissioning bodies to review their proposals around the funding of the service; In favour of Reach and it's members before March 2020! We all need a voice!
