Here are some of the things we did at our last meeting

Our Voice Our Choice South West - August Meeting 1a

We met new members of our group.  We also met someone who might be coming to help us next time.

We talked about social workers and having an assessment. We thought ‘assessment’ was a difficult word.

We talked about how we want people to listen to us.  We talked about how we can help people to listen to our views.

We watched clips from a new TV show about people with Down’s syndrome.  We answered questions about the show.

You can also read our blogs to see what we do at our monthly meetings.
