Comments from Participants of the Greater Manchester Partners Programme:

First Session

"Excellent information pack, it is the best that I have seen in all the time I have been in the disability movement".

"The speakers were excellent, and my worries about falling asleep were not realized".

"Already I am able to see my disabled son in a different way. He has needs and rights just because he has no verbal communication does not alter this"

"Hearing about the history stopped me feeling guilty about not getting the help that my son needed I just loved the whole weekend, mixing with people, I have already gained confidence and had my eyes opened"

"The people who spoke, notably for me Paul Taylor, were absolutely incredible"

"If it was possible to score higher than 5 in some cases, I would"

"Hearing from the people who had been on the last course"


"Increase my confidence and self advocacy skills through listening to other people who have done it, and validating for me just how much I already do know, but didn't realize it. Thank you for all the excellent speakers and the time of the session just flowed and left me with a lot to think about."

"It was obviously very well planned and thought out. People with a obvious genuine reason for designing and promoting this Partners course for us. A relaxed atmosphere, all information on hand, all speaker well clued up on their topic, absolutely no complaints!"

"I feel more confident concerning the subject of inclusion, and will continue to challenge any exclusion concerning my son."

"The speakers were excellent, the information was very clear and concise, sometimes very painful to hear, but had to be heard. I feel very privileged to have taken part so far and been given access to information to which I'm sure would never have known. Thank you"

"I was a little nervous about the course because of the long hours, I could not be more wrong. this weekend has strengthened my determination to continue working for disabled peoples rights and promote advocacy, can't wait for October"

"I love it here, I can't wait to come back. I can't get enough!!"
