Include Me TOO are inviting B.A.M.E families with children (all ages) with learning disabilities to join us as part of a call to action.
Include Me TOO are working with the Race Equality Foundation as health and social care inequalities continue to impact live outcomes negatively of African, Caribbean, Asian and Minority Ethnic (B.A.M.E) people with learning disabilities and their parents and carers. This needs addressing and we want to hear directly from families with children (all ages including 25 years plus) with learning disabilities your experiences of health and social care services accessed by your loved ones with learning disabilities.
The parents/carers focus group workshops are taking place online via zoom on the following days: (you only need to attend one)
Wednesday 22nd September 2021 10.00am to 12.00pm or 7.00pm to 9.00pm
Thursday 23rd September 2021 10.00am to 12.00pm or 7.00pm to 9.00pm
Contact us to get involved in group discussion sessions and if you want to talk directly to a member of the team to share your experiences on this important issue.
The workshop interactive discussion will:
- Provide background to the importance of this work and what we know about the health and social care inequalities of B.A.M.E people with learning disabilities and lack of improvement.
- Provide a space for B.A.M.E families with children (all ages inc 25 years plus) with learning disabilities to share health and social care experiences
- Share how health and social care support can be most meaningful / or value to your family member with learning disabilities and your family and more supportive of your culture.
- How can the health and social care support be improved for B.AM.E people with learning disabilities and their families
