Local Groups

Local groups are the backbone of People First.

Members come together in their local area to support each other, gain skills and confidence and campaign on issues that affect them. There are over 100 local People First groups throughout Scotland.

Local groups are supported by a People First development worker or volunteer advisor. You can find out who your Local Development Worker is by looking at the Contact Us Page.

In our groups we:

  • Meet professionals about issues that are important to us.
  • Speak up for ourselves.
  • Talk about things that are important to us.
  • Have a say in consultations.
  • Support each other.
  • Campaign for better lives for people with learning disabilities.
