Thinking about health and people with learning disabilities - 11am - 3pm

Thursday 20th September

This FREE all day event has been organised by the National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi) and takes place at Showroom and Workstation, 15 Paternoster Row, Sheffield.

This event is about what people with learning disabilities, their families and supporters need to know about some important health issues:

  • Weight and the importance of being a healthy weight
  • Mental health and wellbeing
  • Flu jabs and other ways to stop getting flu

It is also about what people with learning disabilities, families and supporters can do so that people with learning disabilities can live better, healthier lives.

This is the second of seven events being held around England throughout the year.
The event will start at 11am, with drinks from 10.30am, and will finish at 3pm.
This event is for people with learning disabilities and their family carers.
People with learning disabilities can bring a paid supporter with them who can help them be more healthy.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
