Watch our film celebrating how SpeakEasy NOW first started with the Service User Network of Worcestershire.

“Hello Everyone,“I have just watched your fabulous film. It made me laugh and have a few tears too. You all must have had great fun making it and remembering what Speakeasy has done over its 15 years I hope the group continues for many more years to come to give a voice to people with learning disabilities across Worcestershire I feel so proud of being a very small part of SpeakEasy NOW. Well Done Everyone!  Best Wishes to all – Jules
“As well as having a leading role in engagement, participation and empowerment of people with learning disabilities, their work with Transforming Care has been recognised nationally. They support a number of experts by experience who work with Worcestershire County Council and hold a People’s Parliament. I would be surprised if you could find a better organisation to work with in terms of engagement.” Richard Keble, Former Assistant Adult Services Director, Worcestershire County Council

Our Health Checkers ensure that health services meet the needs of the community.
