Speaking Up Group and Young People

Wiltshire People First’s Speaking Up Group and Young People’s Group have looked at a number of topics.

 Back at the beginning of the year the groups looked at the general election and how to vote and what to do on polling day.

A special board game was made and members were asked questions about voting as they moved around the board. Michael said “this was a fun way to remind people of what to do”.

The groups have also taken part in a Government consultation paper called ‘No Voice Unheard’ about the rights of people with Learning Difficulties and Mental Ill health and a Wiltshire Council consultation about a learning disability plan. Taking part in these ensures that people’s voices are heard.
