Revolution Earth is owned and operated by Adrian Ball who also collaborates with other organisations, community artists and specialists.

Adrian has over 20 years experience of working with children and adults with both learning and physical disabilities in a variety of settings.

Revolution Earth was established in September 2009 when Adrian left his position as Parliament Project Worker with REACH, a group advocacy project that works with adults who have a learning disability and live in Stoke-on-Trent.

This post involved working closely with people with a learning disability, supporting them to plan the future of the Parliament and to speak up to service providers.

Before this Adrian spent 4 years working in special schools in     Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire as part of the ASIST        (Advocacy Services in Staffordshire) Transition Project.

During this time he developed many approaches to working individually and in groups with young people between the ages of 13 to 25 years. As part of this project he worked with learners to create speaking up groups that met every two weeks to discuss issues that were affecting them and to generate solutions to problems.

This participatory work led to new ideas, improved ways of working and ultimately change within the schools. Teachers saw the work as a way of evaluating the curriculum that was being offered and it also allowed them to gain insight into the young people’s perception of their learning environment.
