Vale of Glamorgan AM Jane Hutt met Vale People First Coordinator Liz Davidson on Friday August 19th, to hear more about how a £60,000 grant over three years from Lloyds Bank Foundation will help young disabled people live independently.
Vale People First is a self advocacy organisation for and led by people with a learning disability in the Vale of Glamorgan. Jane said:
“I have been supporting Vale People First for many years and am delighted that this Lloyds Bank Foundation grant will enhance their fantastic work by funding the salary of a Moving on Well Transitions Worker and Coordinator. This funding will help disabled young people to access suitable accommodation and financial guidance as well as raising their awareness about social services support and their rights to housing benefits.”
