What being a trustee means to me
Since I started my career in care in my (late) teens I have always held close my values of supporting people to maintain as much choice, control, autonomy and independence as possible. The role of Trustee means that I can share my passion and commitment to ensuring my values and voices of people with a disability are central to any support provision.
It is a privilege and an honour to be elected as a trustee at Learning Disability Wales.
