What is Glasgow ACE?
Glasgow ACE (Advisory Committee to ENABLE) is ENABLE Glasgow’s self advocacy group. ACE empowers people with learning disability to voice the issues that are important to them at both local and national level. The group is open to all adults with learning disability who have an interest in campaigning. Glasgow ACE is part of the wider National ACE network and has good links with other local ACE groups and campaigning organisations. The group is therefore in a strong position to act as the voice of people with learning disability in Glasgow.
