Information for people with a learning disability, autistic people, families and carers

This is a page of resources to help people give feedback, raise a concern or make a complaint:

Speakup Self-Advocacy resources

We have worked with Speakup Self-advocacy and others to produce two sets of resources:

  • Top tips by and for autistic people. This is a booklet with a separate form people can use for their own feedback, concerns and complaints. There is also a template of this form that organisations can adapt and make their own.
  • Top tips by and for people with a learning disability. This easy read booklet tells you more about feedback, concerns and complaints. It has lots of useful tips to help you do any of these things. It also contains a form you can fill in if you want to give feedback, raise a concern or make a complaint. There is also a template of this form that organisations can adapt and make their own.

We have also produced a range of materials for organisations and practitioners which people may like to share with organisations they are in contact with.
