Simone Aspis

Simone is a self advocate and campaigner for the rights of people with learning difficulties.

I am a disabled person (with learning difficulties) who is acting as an advocate for detained in-patients with learning difficulties and autism who want to be released from psychiatric hospitals. I have over 20 years experience campaigning for disabled peoples’ human and civil rights, working for People 1st, the United Kingdom’s Disabled Peoples Council and the Alliance for Inclusive Education and Not Dead Yet.
