Telford & Wrekin 250-253

Views on Care for Adults with Learning Disabilities

A wide-ranging engagement has been launched by Telford & Wrekin Council to shape the future of care for adults with learning disabilities and their families.

Telford & Wrekin Council understands the need to ensure that adults with learning disabilities have a say in what they are offered. The council wants to ensure that advice, information, care and support is aspirational, modern and meaningful for adults with learning disabilities. 

As part of this, they are asking you to think beyond the obvious and help them shape the future during a six week engagement. 

They want to know what is important to you, what works well and what you aspire to. 

To ensure the best outcome, Telford & Wrekin Council need you to help them by taking part in the engagement and letting them know how you see the future.

Councillor Andy Burford, Cabinet Member for Health and Social Care, said: “We want people with a learning disability, their families and carers to receive the assistance they need in a way that enhances their independence and enables them to lead meaningful, valued lives in their own communities. 

“We want to understand what adults with learning disabilities need to live as independently as possible with the right support in place. 

“Adults with learning disabilities should have the opportunity to live happy, healthy, safe and independent lives, be respected and have choice and control over their decisions, including getting out and about and going to work. 

“We want as many of you as possible to give us your feedback so we can then develop a local Adults with Learning Disability Strategy which will help us deliver our responsibilities as well as meeting local needs.” 

You can take part in the engagement from Tuesday, 25 February, by visiting: www.telford.gov.uk/ld 

The website also features a range of information and an easy to use survey.

The engagement runs until 9 am on Monday, 14 April 2020

Room on the Broom

Room on the Broom (Relaxed Performance)

Start Date:
22nd May 2020

End Date:
22nd May 2020

Start Time:
1300

End Time:
1400 approx

Event title: Room on the Broom (Relaxed Performance)
Venue: Birmingham Hippodrome, Hurst Street, Southside, Birmingham B5 4TB
Name: Birmingham Hippodrome
Email: [email protected]ippodrome.com
Telephone: 0121 689 1060
Event description: Relaxed Performances: Our relaxed performances are open to all, but created for people with special needs who may find the theatre challenging. This includes people with an Autistic Spectrum Condition, learning disability, or sensory and communication disorder.

We encourage and create an atmosphere where everyone feels safe and able to react to a show as they wish. We sell fewer seats, which means more room for wheelchairs and more space and comfort.

Attendees are welcome to walk in and out of the auditorium as they please and make noise throughout. Certain aspects of staging are also adapted to suit the audience. The script may be simpler, bright lights and loud noises reduced, and house lights raised so the auditorium is not completely dark.

We also have a calm space nearby, with beanbags, sensory toys and bubble lights, for when people need it. All front of house staff are trained in advance of all relaxed performances.

About the show: Jump on board the broom with the witch and her cat in Tall Stories’ fun-filled adaptation of Room on the Broom, the best-selling picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

The witch and her cat are travelling on their broomstick when they pick up some hitch-hikers – a friendly dog, a beautiful green bird and a frantic frog. But this broomstick’s not meant for five and – CRACK – it snaps in two… just as the hungry dragon appears!

Will there ever be room on the broom for everyone? Find out in the magical, musical Olivier Award nominated show for everyone aged 3 and up.

News from Ludlow.

Last year, on the 12th June, staff going to Loudwater studio were met by the horrific sight of the flooding, resulting in it being closed for 7 months. This was a very difficult time for everyone. After lots of hard work, they are pleased to say Loudwater has re-opened its doors once again.

There are lots of changes and they now have a fantastic newly refurbished studio. Find out more by clicking on this link https://loudwaterstudio.org.uk/news/

Nicola Hook from Loudwater said “We had so much community support after the flood, and during our recovery time, that we wanted to recognise this in some way, and what better way we thought than to make sure everyone knows that Loudwater is for them by adopting community into our name. Welcome to Loudwater Community Arts”

Remember Loudwater Community Arts is for everyone. Loudwater is a perfect place for vulnerable adults and those that support them to enjoy creativity, whilst relaxing and meeting new people.  They also run a number of workshops, courses and regular activities led by experts in their field.  Predominantly taking place on Thursdays and Fridays, if you’re looking for a new hobby or simply want to spend the day with a friend having fun and getting creative then think about going to Loudwater studio.

There are lots of ways you can get in touch with with Loudwater Community Arts.  If you’d like to come and see us please give us a quick call first on 01584 877272 to arrange a time, or if you prefer please email us using the information set out below. We look forward to hearing from you.
