Highlighting health in equalities for people with learning disabilities & autistic people

Hi everyone,

My name is Catherine and I’ve been working on a project about health inequalities in our communities and I thought I’d share here if that’s ok? I think it really links to what’s discussed here within the network.

‘Jasper Pickles Climbs Everest’ is an audio story which explores the health inequalities of autistic people and people with learning disabilities, and was co-created and voiced by people with lived experience. Through taking a walk in Jasper’s shoes as he takes an intrepid journey to the hospital, ‘Jasper Pickles Climbs Everest’ promotes further reflection on what you might to do help people like Jasper. You can listen to a captioned version on YouTube: https://youtu.be/pYX7ZjujIJk

I work for Made By Mortals, where we create audio stories like this that ‘bring lived experience to life.’ We work in partnership with health and social care organisations to coproduce our work, in this case it was MacIntyre, a charity who provide learning, support and care for people with learning disabilities and/or autistic people.

I’d really appreciate it if you could share it amongst your networks, or on social media so we can help bring about positive change for people who find themselves in a similar situation to Jasper.

Thanks so much for taking to the time to read this and do let us know what you think of the piece,
