Today I briefly attended the Learning Disability Partnership Board meeting co-chaired by Cllr Jim Mckenna. This group of people including people who have learning disabilities represent all those who have learning disabilities, those who support them and service providers in Cornwall.
I used to manage a day service in Helston and set up a supported living service so that people could be supported to live independently. I also chaired the Choughs Training Project in Penzance many years ago.
At today's meeting I was obviously wearing a very different hat but I was pleased to see many people who I know and have worked closely with in the past.
