Yesterday I went to an event hosted by Sue Jones & John Hunt from a Self Advocacy Group called Halton Speak Out.
The event is called No Voice Unheard No right Ignored, it was about the LB justice campaign & how people with profund disabilities were ill supported in places by people who worked there. This is something I am really passionate about & I hope people will support the campaign.

Today is the general election where we choose our next prime minister. Everybody has a right to take part & vote including people with a learning disability.
Hear My Voice is a campaign to help people who have a learning disability to learn about how to vote. This campaign is run by Mencap and also gives people information such as easy read manifestos.
I will be voting later on today and I hope that everyone else is voting too.
