The Stay Up Late campaign

Stay Up Late campaigns to make sure people with learning disabilities are able to lead active and fun social lives and live the kind of lifestyle they want to live. We want people to be able to make their own decisions about how they spend their time, not have their evenings cut short because of inflexible rotas for support staff or residential homes locking their doors at 10pm.

In 2018 we launched our Manifesto for an Ordinary Life. It includes things like:

  • The right to decide how I spend my time
  • The right to decide 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

We are working to build up a network of Stay Up Late campaigners around the country. We work with individuals with learning disabilities and with self-advocacy groups to help turn our manifesto demands into reality.

In 2019 we launched our #NoBedtimes campaign to give people with learning disabilities the same opportunities to enjoy great nights out as everyone else. You can find out more about our #NoBedtimes campaign here.
