Come and talk to your Local Learning Disability Team

Hello LD OX, my name is Vicky Wareing and I work with the North Oxfordshire Learning Disability Team.

We have been busy working with lots of people in Oxfordshire to organise monthly group meetings. This is so that we can talk to people we have supported about what we do.

At these meetings we share ideas and think of ways to make the NHS community learning disability teams the best they can be.

If you have ever received support from us we want to invite you to get involved. Your views are important to us.

We can pay you for your time and have already made changes in our service to improve care following recommendations from the group.

I would really like to hear from anyone out there who is interested in being part of the working group.

We currently have a monthly meeting in Banbury and welcome new members. We are looking to begin a group in the Witney, Carterton and Chipping Norton Area’s.

So, if you are interested and would like more information, please let me know on here or contact the learning disability team.

Thanks for reading!

Dear Vicky,

We live at Grendon Underwood which is just in Bucks and Banbury is a bit far for us to come to but if you ever set up a group in, say, Bicester we would be very interested in attending.

Kind regards
Brian

Hi Vicky

Is there a group set up in the Witney area yet?

Hi Kawl, sorry for the delay, I’ve been experiencing issues with logging in, we have not had much interest in Witney area. I have sent out emails and we provide flyers to invite people to contact us to set up a group- Have you seen one?

All Service users are welcome to join the next meeting held in Banbury at the Redlands Day Service on 6th October 2016, 10:30am- 12:30. We really want to hear your views and pay service users for there time.

I’m happy to link up with you and plan a Witney date if you know people who would like to attend?

Kind regards

Vicky

Hi Vicky - thats such a shame - I think it is definitely worth us having a chat about how we can get more people interested - I know of several groups that do meet so may be worth tapping in to those. FYI I have not seen a flyer or email - I do run a Facebook page West Ox SEN that I could use to promote a meeting. Do you want to contact me on either kathy.liddell@oxfsn.org.uk or call me on 07786 731634 and we can discuss to see what we can do.

Many thanks

Kathy
