Self Advocacy Forum for People on the Autism Spectrum
Location: at The Elms, 61 Green Lane, Redruth, TR15 1LS
Time: from 2 pm to 4 pm
Cornwall People First is a user-led self-advocacy charity that runs forums for people with learning disabilities all over Cornwall. The forums are facilitated by Outreach Inclusion Workers whilst the forum content is determined by the attendees. People talk about things important to them, make new friends, learn new skills, and build connections with the community. Each forum has a forum rep that takes the views of the forums to the Learning Disability Partnership Board to inform and change services for the better. The charity has also recently started self-advocacy forums for people on the autism spectrum, one is in the East of Cornwall and the other the West. Like the Learning Disability forums, a rep from the autism forums will attend the Autism Partnership Board.
