Campaigning

Our vision is a world where people with a learning disability are valued and treated equally. We challenge wrong ways of thinking about learning disability and strive to empower and include all people.

2015 – Hear My Voice in Kent This film showcases the work we did as part of National Mencap's Hear My Voice campaign. The project engaged people with a learning disability in the democratic process and supported them to understand and sign up to the electoral register for the 2015 General Election.

2016 - Changing Kent Communities This film showcases the work of our District Partnership Groups in supporting people with a learning disability to become more independent and engage with their local community.

A film documenting DPG campaign work is currently in production and will demonstrate the positive impact that people with a learning disability can have on their own lives. (October 2016)

Lee is 31 years old and regularly attends sessions at our Resource Centres in Thanet. On Tuesday 9th April, he delivered a talk to his peers  and support staff at our Ramsgate Resource Centre about living with Cystic Fibrosis. With support from his keyworker, Fiona Wonford, and Mum, Annette, Lee stood in front of more than 20 people to explain what the disease is, how it affects him personally and the challenges he faces daily.
Two part time Personal Assistants are required to support a 19 year old student with physical disability. This young man will be commencing a course at Canterbury college in September 2019 and will be living close by in student accommodation. He is engaging and sociable and requires support to further develop his independence and allow him to enjoy student life to the full. He enjoys films and music as well as Xbox. He will need support in undertaking some college assignments.

Staying safe online

In January, Kent Police hosted an Internet Safety Workshop for people with a learning disability at our Herne Bay Resource Centre. The workshop covered social media, online scams and briefly touched on personal safety at the request of the attendees. Local Vulnerable Adult Intervention Officer, PCSO Dan Mimran led the workshop alongside his colleague, PCSO Matt Farley.

Major expansion

We have finally completed the purchase of Foresters Hall in Ramsgate after Thanet District Council agreed to sell the property through a Community Asset Transfer. Foresters Hall, which includes a listed building from 1811, as well as other properties, will provide us with much needed space to expand its services for people with a learning disability and their families.
