The Respect Safety Voice Project (RSVP) was able to break down perceived barriers and misconceptions particularly between vulnerable adults with learning difficulties/disabilities and young people whom they fear when out and about in Croydon. The adults gained confidence working alongside the young people, who in turn gained respect and understanding for the adults’ vulnerability and needs.
