The Speak Out Council, VoiceAbility’s voice for people with a learning disability and autism visited 2 of The Edmund Trust’s services to find out how people “Live Well”.
We talked with 14 people at Pauline Burnett House in Chesterton, and The Poplars Respite service.
11 people got to grips with our main consultation with questions about staying active, how to keep out of hospital and how to cheer yourself up.
Whilst 3 people did our High Support Needs questions on similar topics but with a little bit more hands on prompting and help from their support staff.
Once consultation elsewhere in Cambs have finished next month, results will be shared with the County Council adult social services team and other relevant professionals to make sure the voices of people with a learning disability and or autism are listened to.
We’ll leave the final word with one of our chattiest participants , “I need to live well, because I want to live longer”.
