From 1pm – 1.30pm the Hear Us group, Discovery Centre
Everyone is welcome. Share news about what is happening for learning disability services in Hampshire and how things are working for everyone.
We work with the Hampshire Learning Disability Partnership Board. We talk about transport, health, support and getting a job. Group members then tell the Partnership Board what people are saying. This makes sure people with learning disabilities are included in the development of their local services.
Group members also take part in training, conferences, consultations and work that tells people about the views of people who have a learning disability.
We talk about things like transport, health, support and getting a job.
