  • Represent people with learning difficulties at various national meetings
  • Organise and support the Sutton Partnership board to give a voice to a wider community of people in the borough with learning difficulties

At a recent group meeting, members discussed what motivates them as an adult with a learning disability and here are a few comments that were collected at a social meeting.
