Llinos Jones has been to meet Mencap Cymru for a first meeting at Xcel Bowling, Carmarthen. She gives an insight into the day and the work planned.
It was a pleasure to be a part of Mencap’s fun day down at Xcel Bowling in Carmarthen, and a pleasure to meet everyone involved with this amazing charity. The aim of this day for me was to get to know everyone better, and see if someone would be interested and benefit from work experience at Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru. There were a few that were interested, and I hope that this relationship will continue and be a successful one in the long run.
Our vision is a world where people with a learning disability are valued equally, listened to and included. Our challenge, alongside people with a learning disability and their families, is to make this world a reality.
Right now, people with a learning disability face inequalities in every area of life. We need to tackle the issues head on through tireless campaigning and the delivery of high quality support and services to the people who need us.
