Our Organisation

We are a membership organisation run by and for adults with a learning disability. Our aim is to help people with learning disabilities to speak out, be respected and live active, healthy and happy lives.

Anyone with a learning disability who lives in Merseyside can join us. Our office is in Bootle but our work takes us all over Merseyside and sometimes beyond. We do activities and learn things together through different projects and training. We meet with and listen to other people with a learning disability and speak up on their behalf at meetings about the issues that affect them.

Find out more about us and our projects by looking around our website. You can also find out what is currently going on by reading our news stories or checking out our calendar for upcoming activities and events.

If you are interested in joining People First Merseyside, you can call us on 0151 329 2137 to arrange a visit.
