About this cause

About our cause

The Map Squad was founded as an information group in 1999 by adults who were using learning disability services in the London borough of Tower Hamlets. The Map Squad supports people with learning disabilities to know their rights as citizens, and how they can take control of their own lives. We believe that people who use or have used Learning Disability Services have the right to be included and respected and to receive the support they need to achieve their goals. Our organisation is run and managed by people with learning disabilities called \'members\'. Members are involved in making decisions at every level of the organisation, including as directors, steering group member, recruitment as well as the design, delivery and participation of projects. As a community development organisation, the Map Squad has supported a number of successful projects in the past. The projects have ranged from a club night for people with learning disabilities to a community paper using easy words and pictures. Since 2008 the Map Squad has also run an investment-fund called the People’s Project Fund (PPF). Anybody with an idea for a local community that will benefit their self and others in the community and that can demonstrate the active involvement of people with learning disabilities project can apply for funding. In 2008 we supported 11 successful community projects. We are currently fundraising to secure enough money to give out another round of grants to support local people’s ideas for building a stronger community. If you have any more questions about the Map Squad and what we do please contact us on: 020 7247 3030.
