Events for Children with a Learning Disability
We have also seen some exciting changes at the Riverwood Projects- with the introduction of furniture painting and gardening workshops. Riverwood are holding an open day on April 31st from 10am-3:30pm at their Woolwich workshop. Come along to find out about attending Riverwood and see the fantastic work that they do.

We held a Money Skills Workshop with GAD. Barclays Bank staff came to the Forum to give advice for Adults with a Learning Disability on managing their money. Those who attended the event said that they had enjoyed the workshop and found it useful.
What’s On for Children?
Greenwich Mencap not only supports people with a learning disability and their carers – we also lend our voice to theirs in raising issues and concerns affecting the lives of people with a learning disability. Whether that be education, employment, social lives or care – Greenwich Mencap will always campaign for the best possible services for people with a learning disability.
As an affiliate to national Mencap, and with a membership in the hundreds across the borough and beyond, we are a strong organisation and we know the impact we can have when we all speak with one voice.
At the same time, we will always alert our members to those times when they can let their own opinions be heard. All too often the views of people with a learning disability go unnoticed. Communication is often a barrier, while carers are frequently too busy caring to fully assert themselves. In these cases, Greenwich Mencap is here to support.
If there is an issue you believe in, and you think we should know about it, or do more to help bring about changes, we’d love to hear from you.
