Free event on housing

A FREE event is being held next week to highlight housing options for people with a learning disability.

Mencap is holding their local conference at the Shiremoor Centre, Earsdon Road, on Thursday, January 20, from 10am to 2pm.

The event is for people with a learning disability, their parents, carers and others who help them.

The day includes a range of practical workshops and presentations in housing related subjects.

Also in attendance will be local housing providers, those offering community support and Mencap’s own Golden Lane housing service.
