Reading Learning Disabilities Carers' Forum
Wednesday 11 December
11am - 12.30pm
Civic Centre, 19 Bridge Street, Reading RG1 2LU

Calling all carers of an adult with a learning disability.

Learning disability services are under pressure and there are more cuts to come. This is the only remaining forum for learning disability and people with a learning disability and their carers are feeling the cold wind of austerity more than any other sector of the community.

This is the place to tell Reading Borough Council about your problems, to get answers and to influence change.

For more information, call Leslie Macdonald, Chair of Reading Mencap on 07780 680 739.
