John and James are Learning Disability and Autism Leaders
We are so proud that James Morris and John Keaveny have been announced as Learning Disability and Autism Leaders in a list officially published in the Guardian this week.
James and John were chosen from 600 entries for the first national listing of its kind. It celebrates people determined to bring about social change. The Leadership List was published in the Guardian and online this week and each leader is profiled in detail; James for his work around advocacy, policy and media and John for his work in work and education.
The listing describes James’ contribution and how he “has come far in his own life, from being viewed as challenging to educating and supporting others. He is making a real difference and is a worthy winner of a place on the Leaders List.” James was involved in the development of our Hops Not Hate Beer.
John is praised for his work with Treat Me Right!, “training thousands of medical staff in learning disability and autism awareness, creating on-ward champions at hospitals across North West London.” It goes on to describe that “not only does John provide this training, but he also speaks about his work at local and national events, to ensure that the message is spread far and wide.”
As part of their ongoing mission to influence change for people with autism and learning disabilities, John and James have both written blogs which are available to read here.
