Abstract: This article has been written by a group of persons with intellectual disability, which is called the Consultative Committee of Persons with Intellectual Disability. This group works in Malta. The article is about how we would like to live. It looks at two things: ‘where we would like to live’ and ‘going out in the community’. This article shows the different opinions of persons with intellectual disability about these subjects. The fact that different people have different opinions shows why it is important that service providers talk to persons with intellectual disabilities about how they would like to live. They have a right to choose. Other people should not decide for them about what they would like to do in their lives. But it is also important to remember that they need help in their lives and more accessibility so that they can do what they would like to do.
