Residents with physical, sensory or learning difficulties or mental health concerns, along with their parents and carers, are invited to attend the Waveney Disability Forum’s AGM next week.
The virtual meeting takes place on Tuesday 16 March via Zoom and is open to anyone with a disability living in the local area.
The meeting will focus on mental health services and support for people with disabilities of all ages. This is particularly important as coronavirus restrictions begin to ease which may cause stress or anxiety for some people, especially those who are clinically vulnerable. The meeting is an opportunity to share details of the support available for individuals, families and disability organisations, as well as how to access this support and share good practice.
Cllr Letitia Smith, cabinet member for Communities, Leisure and Tourism said: “The Waveney Disability Forum, with support from the East Suffolk Communities Team, continues to be the collective voice for local people with disabilities in the north of the district. The Forum addresses all issues of disability and works to achieve positive outcomes for the community. Anyone wishing to join the Forum is welcome to attend the meeting.”
The Waveney Disability Forum creates an opportunity for people with disabilities and disability organisations in the local area to come together to consult directly with East Suffolk Council on the services and facilities which affect them.
The meeting, which begins at 10am, is open to members of the public but also service providers who may wish to share details of the mental health support they are offering people with disabilities.
Anyone wishing to attend is asked to contact Stuart Halsey via email@example.com or 07768 114421.
