Become a Stay Up Late Ambassador!
Do you have a learning disability and/or autism?
Do you like the work we do at Stay Up Late and Gig Buddies?
Do you feel passionate about people with a learning disability having their voices heard?
If so, perhaps you would like to become a Stay Up Late Ambassador!
What does a Stay Up Late Ambassador do?
Our Ambassadors are the people who help us spread the word and tell people about our campaigns. Before lockdown our Ambassadors were doing things like speaking at conferences, taking part in discussion workshops and giving out flyers and stickers at gigs and club nights.
What have Ambassadors been doing during lockdown?
Even during lockdown our Ambassadors have been busy – writing blogs, taking part in online events and even talking on the radio!
We’ve been having regular fortnightly meetings on Zoom. We’ve had guest speakers. We’ve heard from legal experts at the law firm Leigh Day as well as the team from Heart n Soul talking about their research project on public attitudes to people with learning disabilities. It’s also an opportunity for Ambassadors around the country to catch up, share news and have fun.
What kind of things do Ambassadors campaign on?
Our Manifesto for an Ordinary Life includes things like:
- The right to decide how I spend my time and when I go to bed
- The right to fall in love and have relationships
- The right to a paid job
- The right to have a say in who supports me
Before lockdown began our ambassadors were also very busy with our #NoBedtimes campaign – we can’t wait to start campaigning on that again so watch this space!
