About Us

We are an advocacy group of community-minded people with intellectual disabilities.

We want to be known as people first before the disability we have been labelled with.

We believe in the rights of people.  Knowing your rights are important, with them you have the freedom to make your own decisions and dreams.  Knowing your rights and responsibilities helps you to speak up for yourself and have self-respect.  

Mission

Our Rights, Our Dreams, Our Community

We advocate for the value, dignity, and human rights of people living with an intellectual disability.

Vision

People First Peterborough works in partnership and shares in the vision of Community Living Peterborough:  

That all people live in a state of dignity, share in all elements of living in their community and have the opportunity to participate effectively.
