Adulthood Information Evening – Tuesday 5 May

We would like to invite you to join us on Tuesday 5th May for a free information evening on the subject of Provisions for Adulthood at the Hilton Hotel, Swindon. The evening will begin at 7pm and we will be providing refreshments free of charge.

 

We have been fortunate enough to have two guest speakers Vanda Ridley, Information Services Manager from the Down’s Syndrome Association (DSA) and Jackie Smith, Executive Headteacher at Uplands. Vanda will be covering further education and the new EHCPs (Education Health and Social Care Plans) as well as making choices for the future and full and part-time work or volunteering. She will also share information on the DSA’s Work-fit Scheme and provide updates on some new legislation about Adult Care Assessments. Whilst Jackie Smith will be speaking about UET (Uplands Educational Trust) and offering her expertise and advise regarding Adulthood.
