About us

We’re a charity that believe that all people with learning disabilities, and autistic people, should be able to lead full and active social lives. This is not only important for peoples’ mental health it’s also good for the health of the whole community.

We challenge inflexible support systems that prevent people with learning disabilities from staying up late.

We know that if you’re supported to have a great social life you’re probably going to have great support around other areas of your life. That’s why being able to choose to Stay Up Late is important.

Paul Richards, the Founder of Stay Up Late tells the story of going from a punk band to social campaigning.
