Thinking Forward for Learning Disabilities

Thinking Forward for Learning Disabilities

As part of Learning Disability Week 2017, staff from the Falkirk learning disability team held an event in the Howgate Centre, Falkirk to give people a chance to find out more about the service and share their views.

The theme for the week was “Looking backwards, thinking forwards” and included pictures of the former Royal Scottish National Hospital. The stand was popular with many people stopping by, from shoppers to people with learning disabilities who had heard about the event.

Staff were on hand to answer questions and also asked the public what they wanted to see more of in the future. Some of the suggestions included more social groups in the evening for young people with learning disabilities, cookery groups for those with learning disabilities and the need for a therapy pool in the local area.

All of the suggestions will be discussed at a team development day.
