Learning Disability Partnership Board Guest Speaker

We recently welcomed Karen Livesey, Director and Trainer with No Whispers Community Interest Company (pictured below), as a guest speaker at one of our Learning Disability Partnership Board Meetings.

Following the meeting, Karen said:

As a visiting guest speaker to the Blackburn with Darwen Learning Disability Partnership Board meeting I was delighted to receive a warm welcome and be introduced to people who were facilitating the event and to members of the Board and people from different groups and organisations.

I noticed the excellent resource materials on the table to enable access for people to read and understand past minutes, and engage in current activities. The layout of the room was good and offered an interactive space that supported group work, discussion and socialbility.

The refreshments and lunch provided a good opportunity to interact, network and meet new people. This format with a business and social approach lends itself to the value of people and the importance of human connection.  

Our Learning Disability Board brings together lots of people to work on making things better for people with learning disabilities and autism and their families.

At Care Network, we organise these important meetings in Blackburn with Darwen in order to support our local community, and we would love everyone who has an interest to join us and get involved.

Please contact us for the full details and more information on ways to join. 

Our next meeting will be held on: Wednesday 12th June
