30 Years and Counting

This event celebrated 30 years of the All Wales Strategy and the contribution of people with a learning disability within their communities in Wales.

People from all over Wales with an interest in learning disabilities came together on 14 October 2013 at the Vale Resort on the old Hensol Hospital site to celebrate 30 years of the All Wales Strategy.

Jointly funded by the Learning Disability Advisory Group, Mencap Cymru  and All Wales People First with additional organisational support from Learning Disability Wales  and All Wales Forum of Parents and Carers, this event marked an important milestone in the history of people with a learning disability living in Wales.

People with a learning disability, families and professionals were all invited to join the celebrations. LDAG co-Chairs Roger Banks and Sophie Hinksman jointly chaired the day and ensured that the agenda ran smoothly. Deputy Minister for Social Services, Gwenda Thomas, delivered a keynote speech outlining some of the significant changes over the last 30 years as well as looking to the future with the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Bill
