PEOPLE FIRST MEETINGS

Speaking up for ourselves.
Improving services that affect us.

Press play to listen to us in our own words


Our People First meetings happen on the first Thursday of every month. We talk about things that matter to us such as:
BULLYING
HATE CRIME
BENEFITS
CARE & SUPPORT SERVICES

People who work for public and health services like the police, local counsellors and social workers will join us to listen to our comments and suggestions. Sharing our views like this means we can help tailor the services that affect us. Our aim is to improve the lives of people with learning disabilities.

LEEP 1 stands for Leeds People First. People First groups started in America and the idea has spread across the world. There are lots of People First groups in Britain and are a platform for people with a learning disability to speak up for themselves

Everyone is welcome to come to our meetings.
Please let us know if you’d like to attend.

EVERY 1st THURSDAY of THE MONTH
10AM – 11.30AM on Zoom
