A special information day for disabled people, their family and carers is being held later this month by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council.
A whole host of representatives from the Council and partner agencies will come together for an innovative and informative day at Rhondda Sports Centre in Ystrad.
Held on Thursday October 31st from 10am to 3pm, “Reaching Out” will bring together a whole range of Council services that deal specifically with the needs of people who have varying forms of disability.
Plenty of stands will showcase the services on offer from local and voluntary organisations as well as Council services including Housing Advice, Lifeline and Safe At Home, Carers Project, Library Service and Bridges into Work.
There will also be representatives from a diverse range of disability and equal opportunity groups including Mencap Cymru, Age Concern Morgannwg, Crossroads Care and Elite Supported Employment Agency to name but a few.
There are also some spaces still available and organisations are being invited to take this opportunity to apply for a stand at the day-long event.
There will also be a range of activities on offer in the centre, along with a “comfort zone” to relax, chat and enjoy some refreshments.
Following the official launch by Cllr Craig Middle, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Social Justice, there will also be a number of information sessions.
These include presentations and question-and-answer sessions from Rory Davies of the newly launched Cwm Cycling Rhondda Project, Graeme Butterworth of Diverse Cymru who will discuss Welfare Benefits and Minu Mandora from the Cwm Taf Local Health Board whose session will deal with patient experience in our local hospitals and medical centres.
The Reaching Out Information Day runs from 10am to 3pm on Thursday October 31st at Rhondda Sports Centre, Ystrad.
