"What a great story.not one the uk tells though-we are getting much better at it..as a social care worker supporting adults in the community'directly' i did see first hand that the community does care-will care,we need to stop making…"

I have a strong innate sense of fairness,to all who live in there communitys/i force and push barriers that prevent this natural right..I have personally worked in these areas,and personally pushed barriers like this..Iv pulled people into there communitys by setting up groups that promote health and well being-cooking group i started-knocked on doors in the local community-pushed for garden space from local athoritys! All which i acheived by way of to show and prove to people i supported in the community-they to can have the power to take what is rightfuly there place to live,how they chose to.
What part of the world do you live in? Would you share a bit about your neighbourhood?
I live in scotland..i come from a disatvantaged area of the country or more the city..Local athority and nhs our healthcare pour tuns of money into telling us all to eat a balenced diet,i,e,5 a day etc..what frustrates me for people with learning disabilitys who live independant lives with very little support,is:no one tells them what any of that means,no one tells them the jargon terms,what is eating healthy?to them,and so much more that gets over looked by box tickers when trying to promote anything in the community..people with a support need get overlooked when it comes to the do gooders,doing no good for the people who are at the most risk.
