On Thursday 11th of January the Learning Disability Partnership hosted the first meeting of the Support Worker & PA Network.
The network was of the original priorities of the Learning Disability Strategy. Support Workers are integral to the implementing the vision of the Strategy, and there needs to be a space to hear their voice.
We had representatives from organisations working across Suffolk attend the planning meeting. Agenda included:
- A presentation from Sue Hubbard from Suffolk County Council Workforce Development
- A presentation about the Learning Disability Partnership Board, and the opportunity to become a Board Member
- A discussion about how can use social media to operate as a Network outside of meetings
- A group discussion about how we can use the Network for peer support
Thank you to all who attended.
The next meeting will be held at Ipswich Library on the 19th of April. Please use this link to book a place. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/support-worker-and-pa-network-meeting-tickets-42194420648?aff=eac2
