We at Shropshire Disability Network are hoping you will all support us at this weeks meeting. It is the first meeting we have held at University Centre Shrewsbury, Guildhall, Frankwell Quay, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY3 8HQ
Join us between 10.30 am & 11 am for refreshments prior to starting the meeting, This gives you opportunity to meet other members (not been to a meeting before then bring a friend along, they will be welcome to)
After the necessary business which includes an update of what has been happening over the last 3 months, we look forward to welcoming two guest speakers.
- Katrina Gilman-Equality & Diversity Officer for Telford Wrekin & Shropshire will talk to us about Hate Crime & Disability Awareness. Katrina took on this role when Ann Shaw retired at the end of December 2015. Katrina has worked for West Mercia Police since 2000. She has worked in varying roles in the Criminal Justice Department. She is passionate about Safe Places, a community initiative we lead on.
- Our second speaker us Kerrie Berroyer from Dazlious, learning the language of Autism. She has her own story to tell, having no knowledge of autism, she was thrust into it in 2005 when her son was born. This meant her professional career had to take a back seat!
During the course of the morning (finish by 1 pm) you will have opportunity to network. We have Sign Language Interpreters (BSL) at all our meetings. To help meet our ongoing costs, we also hold a raffle (tickets £1 a strip) & we thank those of you who donate prizes.
Come along & see the Awards we won at the recent Mayor of Shrewsbury Awards evening as we are rightly proud to show them off. The Management Committee believe this will be a great morning & we look forward to meeting you. We hope you will enable us to have a record attendance. See you Thursday.
