Our Learning Difficulty and Autism Council representatives have been very busy since being elected.

Theses are just a few of the many things that they have been up to:

  • We have sent out a health survey to 600 members of One-to-One regarding their experiences of health services and easy read within the NHS.

  • We have attended the Learning Disabilities Partnership Board since 2017.
  • We have gone to a full council meeting to see how local democracy works and how the council works.
  • We have taken part in a number of consultations including on charging policies from Enfield Council – this led to the proposed changes being stopped.
  • We have 10 Learning Difficulty and Autism Council meetings per year.

  • We have representatives on the health sub-group and TFL big transport meeting.
  • We have met with the Mayor of Enfield, local councillors and visited council chambers to find out what councillors do and how local democracy works.

  • We helped with a wellbeing event with Enfield Council and contributed to a Well-Being Charter so that people being given contracts to run services for people with Learning Difficulties and Autism have to sign up to the charter
  • We have had input in to MyLife website to make sure it is easy to use and understand.
  • We have attended local bus garage days to talk to Arriva and Transport for London about issues that people with Learning Difficulties and Autism have when travelling on the bus.

  • We have had training sessions on what makes a good representative and what the aims of the project are.
  • We are doing ongoing work on easy read documents and having an easy read standard. We are working with staff at St Andrews Court on this.
  • We have worked with Fusion Leisure Centres to hold and support special taster sessions for people with Learning Difficulties at the leisure centres.
