Hello my name is Danielle. I am a learning disability voices network project worker for Brighton and Hove Speak Out. Speak Out is an advocacy organisation that lets people with a learning disability speak up and about things that matter to them. I have a visual impairment as well as a learning disability.
When I am not at Speak Out I like to play video games, creating videos and creating art.
I started doing research in 2020 during the pandemic and I would love to do more. The research that I have done so far is
• 50 years of speaking up in England – Towards an important history with Jan Walmsley
• Speak Out with Danielle – a interview series on YouTube that spoke to people about how lockdown was for them and to help others
• Covid Stories- a interviewing people with a learning disability about how covid was for them. This is still currently going on
An area that I would be interested in researching is about mental health.
