Getting Together

(2010, 12 minutes, colour, DVD) (Available languages: Greek)

This short cartoon is mainly for people who have learning disabilities.

The DVD contains six stories about people making friends or starting relationships. They all have learning disabilities and one is unable to walk or talk. It shows how people with learning disabilities can -

  • meet new people
  • fall out and make friends again
  • look for a partner if they are gay
  • say no to a relationship they don’t want
  • keep themselves safe
  • take the time to get closer to somebody
All the voices on the soundtrack are those of actors with learning disabilities.

There is a booklet in the pack.

GETTING TOGETHER was made in consultation with Mencap, CHANGE, and other organisations. Produced with funding from The Big Lottery Fund.
