Wiltshire People 1st go to the SENDIS event February 2017

Wiltshire Parent Carer Council held a Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities Information Service (SENDIS) Event.

On Friday 3rd February, 2017, Angie Carmichael our Director and Louise Young one of our younger members, took part in the information day at the Corn Exchange in Devizes, organised by the Parent Carers group.  We went to tell parents about Wiltshire People 1st and network with other services.

Sonia arrived early to set up the Wiltshire People 1st display and stand and then supported Louise to talk to visitors.

There were over 40 other organisations, providing information about the help and advice available for parents and carers of young people with learning difficulties.

During the day we spoke to lots of people about the work that Wiltshire People 1st does and many took away our leaflets and newsletters.

There was also the opportunity to look around at the other stands to see what’s on offer. Louise did a tour and picked up leaflets to share with members. She said  “ it was really interesting I didn’t know there was such a lot of things out there for people”.

We hope more people will know about us and get involved in our groups and activities. It will be good to see some new faces at our Young People’s Group!

Here is a photo of Louise helping at our stand.
