Researching what time people leave club nights

The Storm and Thunder team have been working on making our campaigning information more accessible – here’s some information they’ve written, and illustrated, which we’ve turned in to a leaflet to send people running our campaign stands. You can download the leaflet here. The aim of this piece of work is to help us in researching why people are leaving learning disability club nights early.

Stay Up Late want to help people with a learning disability to have a better social life.Researching what time people leave club nights

It’s important for everyone to make choices about how they live their lives and be more independent.Researching what time people leave club nightsStay Up Late are asking people why they are leaving early so that they can find out what needs to change for people to have better social lives.Researching what time people leave club nights

They are also asking people why they are staying late so they can find out what is going well and what kinds of good support people have too.Researching what time people leave club nights

Stay Up Late found out that sometimes people may choose to leave events early because they are tired or have something to do the next day.Researching what time people leave club nights

At other times, people might not choose to leave gigs or other events before 9pm– they might be told they have to leave.Researching what time people leave club nights

One reason for this might be because people have to take their medication.Researching what time people leave club nights

Another reason might be because they have to catch the train or bus to get home.Researching what time people leave club nights

Sometime’s peoples support staff finish their shifts at 10pm so this can also mean that they have to leave at 9pm.Researching what time people leave club nights

Knowing this can help Stay Up Late ask questions about what kind of transport people need and how this affects their social lives.Researching what time people leave club nights

It can also make people think about how the shifts that support staff work need to change so they can support people to go out later.Researching what time people leave club nights

When Stay Up Late know the barriers that people face that stop them having a full and active social life they can start to think about how these can be overcome.
