‘Learning disabled must be listened to’
A Sudbury support worker held an event to make people aware of the needs of those with learning disabilities.
Joanne Connah, who is standing for election to Sudbury Town Council, ran a stall at Sudbury market on Saturday to raise money and awareness for Mencap’s Hear My Voice campaign.
As part of the event, she invited along all five of South Suffolk’s prospective parliamentary candidates.
She said: “The campaign is about ensuring that current MPs and parliamentary candidates are listening to people with a learning disability and making them aware of what key issues matter to them most.
“Even though South Suffolk is not seen as a key parliamentary seat, I still thought it important that those with and without a learning disability know about the campaign so that they can ask their local candidates if they are listening.”
