Self-Advocacy Groups – with KeyRing
Another way to get involved is to come along and join one of the KeyRing monthly Self-Advocacy Groups. This is a place for anyone with a learning disability or autism to come and have a cuppa and a chat with others. If you would like to find out more about self-advocacy these relaxed meetings are a great way to make new friends and make a difference!
Self-advocacy groups meet every month for about 2 hours.
