Carmarthenshire People First, is a self advocacy organisation for People with learning disabilities in Carmarthenshire.
We meet regularly to talk about issues which are important to us, such as day services, support services, and accommodation to make sure that people with learning disabilities know their rights.
We hold regular training sessions for our members and other people who use services, in assertiveness, interviewing skills and advocacy. We also train people with learning disabilities to become trainers.
We employ our trainers to deliver learning disability awareness training to social care and housing staff, and staff from other community groups and organisations.
We try to make sure that people with learning disabilities are involved, at all stages in the planning and development of the services they receive.
