What we do Community life Community life Our community is currently shaped around monthly gatherings and shared meals. As a community we shop, cook and share meals together, using it as an important way of bringing people together and fostering a sense of belonging between people with and without learning disabilities. We meet regularly to pray, and reflect, together. Our core members meet to learn skills for independent living, as well as taking part in arts and crafts workshops. We have a local speaking council, Care to Cooperate, which empowers people with learning disabilities to share their experiences, needs, and concerns. We participate in worship in local churches and our members often go into schools to talk about their lived experiences as people with learning disabilities. We take part in an outreach programme of social activities with other learning disability groups, and have an outreach and fundraising programme of events in the local community that includes taking over pop-up charity shops.
