An event was held to say thank you to all supporters of the community garden. Sean, who is supported by mirus in Maesteg, and also volunteers in the garden, was there to represent mirus.
The job of the Learning Disability Team is to work with partners to make sure that people with a learning disability have the support they need to live full, healthy, and active lives.
These events are an opportunity for people to come together with parents and carers and share with the Welsh Government what is good in their lives and what changes need to be made to make things better in the future.
As part of the agenda for the day Alex and Adam will be giving a presentation to show good practice in Wales. They will be telling people about their roles advocating for themselves and others as mirus reps, and also about how people in mirus are involved in interviews for staff to make sure that mirus employs the best people for the job.
This is the second event of this type in Wales. Alex and Adam have already taken part in an event in Carmarthen and at the end of the month they will be at the final event in Cardiff.
If you can’t make the event, but would love to know more – you can watch our videos below that talk about our mirus reps, and our options for involving people in recruitment and interviews.
What Alex and Adam have to say is going down really well with everyone at these events, and we’re thrilled to be helping them share their experiences.
