UPDATED* Don't quack like a duck, soar like an eagle!
We would like to start our blog by wishing our readers, partners, stakeholders and friends a Happy and Healthy 2022!
A shorter blog than usual to start the New Year as a result of relaxing and sleeping for most of the holiday period!
Our invitation to speak to the Audit & Governance Committee about the aims and objectives of CLIP (Community Led Inclusion Partnership) and the Social Model of Disability just before Christmas was well received. We have been invited to work in partnership with the Committee in taking forward their investigation into accessibility issues in the town – a great step forward.
I just love these links. The first is about Leo and how he now has his own voice (something we’ve been advocating for years) and the simple, but brilliant idea of gig buddies to support people to attend concerts etc!
Just a little bit about us before we go:
As registered #CovidCommunityChampions we post regular updates of the latest guidance on our social media pages.
Our ‘Blue DICE’ service, in partnership with the Community Hubs continues to achieve great outcomes for the people attending. Keep an eye on our social media pages for our latest drop-in sessions, pop along, meet the team and enjoy a cuppa in the newly opened #ChattyCafe

Joke of the Month: Somebody just threw a jar of mayonnaise at me – I was like ‘what the Hellman!’
My wings are aching, the eagle has landed – see you next month!
