Matt from Royal Mencap has been working with a ‘Positive Changes’ group of volunteers with learning disabilities who discuss how they can make life better for people in Leeds. The group are working with Matt to coproduce videos which teach people different skills and show them activities which can help them to stay healthy and happy.
In this half hour session Nicky from the 100% Digital Leeds Team will have a discussion with Matt and some of the ‘Positive Changes’ Group members about the project. We will also show some of the amazing videos that the group have made already!
If you are a person with learning disabilities who would like to learn more about the project- or if you work with or support people with learning disabilities and would like to utilise this fantastic resource then this will be a really informative and interactive session for you!
There will be an opportunity at the end to ask questions and to give your own feedback on the project.
