ITV Fixers: Norfolk teenager says people with disabilities should be treated like anyone else

A Norfolk teenager is making an appeal on behalf of people with learning disabilities to be treated just like everyone else.

Joseph Jackson, who's 19 and from Loddon, says he has the same feelings as anyone else and hopes that by sharing his experiences, he can make a change for all people with disabilities.

He’s enlisted the help of Fixers – the campaign that gives young people a voice – to make his point.

"Just because I have a disability doesn't mean I don't have feelings like everyone else.

I want to Fix the way people treat me and others with disabilities. I want them to treat us as they would anyone else."
