Meet Joe

Joe understands what it's like living with a learning disability. This is what he has said about annual health checks.

It is really sad that people with a learning disability are more likely to suffer bad physical and mental health and will likely die younger than other people. 

But if we work together, we can do something about it. All young people aged 14 or over and adults with a learning disability are entitled to a full health check every year, but so many miss out.
