Base Ballymena
Adam from Base in Ballymoney -We are extremely proud of our organisation as it is user-led and independent.

Our aim is to create an organisation for informed and empowered individuals to push back the barriers…

We want people with learning disabilities to be treated with RESPECT – to have our voices heard and acted on means the world to us…

We want OPPORTUNITIES to be the best we can be – whether this be through training or as part of our local communities…taking control over our own lives and destinies… We believe in PARTICIPATION – taking part and being included – “Nothing about us, without us”…

We stand for EMPOWERMENT…speaking up for ourselves and others and enabling them to have the confidence to speak out!
