At Cornwall People First we help each other connect with the community. Here is our latest short film showing what has been happening at our forums.
Cornwall People First has Forum meetings all over Cornwall where people with learning disabilities speak up about things that are important to them, have fun, meet old and new friends, share information, learn new skills, meet visitors like councillors or liaison nurses, visit places in the community like the fire station and connect with their communities. If you have a learning disability and would like to get involved, just come along.

FORUMS FOR PEOPLE IN CORNWALL WITH A LEARNING DISABILITY
Each learning disability forum votes for a representative to take their views and experiences to Cornwall’s Learning Disability Partnership Board. Our forum reps feed back information to the board so that things can be improved and changed. CLICK HERE to see more about our Cornwall People First forum reps.
Our North and East forums are now run by Fliss Hedge. Our Mid and West forums are run by Roxanne Sutherland. See the table below for upcoming forum dates. Click on the links to see the forum invites.
