New group formed: 'Quiet Riot'

Submitted by Peter Head on 9 August 2011 - 5:00pm

A group of people who use AAC has formed with the name ‘Quiet Riot’.

The group currently consists of nine adults meeting in Manchester and, though diverse in every way, they all need assistance to communicate. They have agreed a number of objectives, including:

  • Getting funding to support group meetings
  • Campaigning for communication aids for all people with disabilities
  • Educating the public that because some people don’t communicate verbally, it does not mean they are not intelligent
  • Making friends and influencing people.

Further details are available on the group’s flyer which can be downloaded here.

If you want to learn more about the group and would like to direct them to funding opportunities so they can meet and work together more frequently, please contact Joe Whittaker on email whittakerjoe@gmail.com or mobile: 07747 448 236.
