Event description

Description

Suffolk People First is a county-wide self-advocacy event hosted by Suffolk based advocacy organisation, Ace Anglia.

The quarterly held events bring together the People First Groups from across Suffolk, family carers, self-advocates and health & social care professionals.

The events aim to:

  • Work in co-production with delegates on implementing the Suffolk Learning Disability Strategy 2015-20
  • Bring people together
  • Provide opportunities for people to talk directly to the Learning Disability Partnership Board
  • Provide opportunities for people to share good news or stories
  • Host presentations about policy, organisations or projects.


Agenda for this event:

10:00 - 11:30

Presentation from the My Life, My Future co-influence transport & travel group

My Life, My Future is Suffolk County Council's response to what the Suffolk Learning Disability Strategy says. A strong message of the Strategy is about people's access to & flexibility around transport. There is a strong push towards independent travel and the benefits of this. Suffolk have recently invested in a travel training programme and members of the Transport co-influence group will present around this. We will be showing some short films about the benefits of independent travel, as well as a presentation co-presented by members of the group.


11:30 - 11:50

Talk to your Partnership Board

Members of the Suffolk Learning Disability Partnership have been working hard over the last 2 years to drive the Learning Disability Strategy. This is a joint Strategy between health & social care services in Suffolk and has the vision of 'People with learning disabilities live good, ordinary lives as part of their community with the right support, at the right time, from the right people.'

Talk to your Partnership Board is a way for delegates at Suffolk People First to ask questions, raise comments or concerns or highlight good practice directly to the Board meeting in November 2017.
