Planning The Advocacy Story Research Groups

The Advocacy Story Steering Group had a very successful meeting today.

We were joined by Paddy and Kat for the for the first time so members practiced their oral history skills by asking them some questions.

Paddy told us a lot of interesting things about the history of People First. It was great to have someone with his knowledge and experience as part of the group.

The group started planning the research topics they would like the Research Groups to focus on. The Research Groups will be groups of other People with learning disabilities. The Steering Group will teach them about how to do research and help them to research self-advocacy on Merseyside. The research groups will learn how to research using the internet, oral history, photographs and written documents.

If you know a group who may be interested in hosting one of the research groups please contact Holly on hollyg@peoplefirst.uk.com or 0151 707 6751
