What we do

Come along and join us at our Reconnect event at Fleur De Lys Community Centre. It will be a great chance to meet and reconnect with other adults with learning disabilities in the borough. Lunch will be provided and this will be a safe, welcoming space to chat and express you views with others at our Consultation day to "Have your say".

As People First members we belong to an international network of self-advocacy groups run by, and for people with learning disabilities. Caerphilly People First gives us a chance to speak up for ourselves, to express our views, and to get the message across to other people that we can think for ourselves and should be allowed to make our own decisions.

Unfortunately, people with learning disabilities are all too often treated unfairly. We are sometimes treated like children, as though we can’t do things for ourselves. People think we don’t have views about things, even when we are adults.
