Hello my name is Sarah and I’ve been coming to the Charity for the last few years. It took me quite a while to pluck up the courage to come along as I wasn’t really sure what the Charity was all about and I thought it was just a place for older people. I was chuffed when I went in and realised that all ages use it!
We recently took part in a research project about the history of learning disability with Dr Owen Barden, a senior lecturer in disability and education at Liverpool Hope University. The project was centred around the social and medical treatment of people with learning disabilities in the past compared with the present day.
George Howarth, the MP for Knowsley, dropped in to see us recently to find out more about the work that our advocacy services do and to meet some of our staff who’ve joined us through the ILM scheme, which is aimed at helping those who have difficulty finding a way into the job market.
