Conwy Connect Shine at LDW conference

 

2014-11-25 08.27.18In November Conwy Connect Engagement service took a piece of work to Learning Disability Wales Conference. The theme this year was Shine – how can everyone have the chance to succeed.

Shell and Shayna came with us and gave a presentation on how being involved with the Reducing Stigma work and the Connect Forum have given them the confidence to begin to reach their potential.

The feedback we received from people that came to our workshop was amazing and being able to show the good work we do within Conwy Connect made us all extremely proud.

Connect Buddies

cblogoConnect Buddies is a new service we have been working on within Conwy Connect.

We want to buddy up volunteers with individuals that have a learning disability to go to events with them such as the theatre, pubs, clubs and music gigs.

This exciting new service will allow people with a learning disability to lead an active social life.   So if you are unable to go to events or other activities because you don’t have a support worker and feel a little nervous, or you only have a support worker until a certain time and this stops you from going to places – GET IN TOUCH!!   Please call Cath on 01492 536486 or email cathpickering@gmail.com
