Abstract

-People with learning difficulties have been involved in research that asked them to tell their stories about how they support (help) each other.
-There were many times when people had helped each other in lots of different ways. 
-People talked about times when they had listened to each other and helped each other when things were hard. They also spoke about working as a team and helping each other to learn.
-Supporting each other can make life better for people with learning difficulties and help to break down the barriers.
