Learning disability youngsters advice in Keighley

First published in Keighley

Adults with learning disabilities in Keighley have been advising young people about services available to them.

Members of People First Keighley and Craven visited transition special schools to talk to teenagers with learning disabilities.

The events, which were held at Braith-waite Special School in Keighley and Hazelbeck School in Bingley, were aimed at students due to attend a school in the near future.

People First members also spoke with families about services available to teenagers, young adults and siblings of those with learning disabilities.

The group also ran a drama session for young people experiencing change in their lives.

A spokesman said: “Although a challenge, the event was thoroughly enjoyed by the participants, and the feedback from families and carers was excellent.”
