We were delighted to be joined by Mark Hendrick MP for Preston at May’s Face2face self-advocacy meeting on Thursday 18th May at Plungington Community Centre.
Our REACT service want to encourage people with learning disabilities to vote on 8th June, and invited Mr Hendrick to talk to us about his party’s policies to help them to make informed choices on the day.
Mr Hendrick stayed for over an hour and answered questions posed by the group including ‘Safety in Town, an initiative set up by Lancashire Learning Disability Partnership Board. Safety in town is a scheme that gets shops and businesses to be safe places for people who feel vulnerable when they are out.
Face2face self-advocacy group meets on the 3rd Thursday of the month from 1.30pm to 3.30pm and anyone with a learning disability is welcome to join us.
