Monmouthshire Voices hosts Assembly election Q&A session for residents with disabilities
People living with disabilities will have an opportunity to meet candidates for the Monmouth constituency in this year’s Welsh Assembly elections and ask questions. The latest Access for All Forum will be held on Friday 4th March from 11am to 1pm in County Hall, Usk.
Organised by the local equalities organisation, SEWREC, which runs a project called Monmouthshire Voices, the forum offers a chance for people with disabilities to influence services, policies and decisions that affect them.
Pennie Walker of Monmouthshire Voices, who will chair the meeting, said: “This is a brilliant opportunity for people to be able to quiz prospective assembly members on the issues that matter to them. I have had a very good response so far from people wanting to attend and I think it will be a lively debate. We have always held the Access for All Forum at County Hall so it makes sense to hold this event where it’s accessible and in a central location. I am very much looking forward to it.”
Those wishing to attend or to receive further details about the Access for All Forum should contact Pennie – email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 07949 040538.
Lunch will be provided at 1pm and people who require transport should contact Pennie by Tuesday, 23rd February.
Following lunch, a forum for the county’s over 50 year olds will be held from 2pm to 4pm to discuss housing.
· Monmouthshire Voices is funded by the Big Lottery and run by SEWREC – the South East Wales Regional Equality Council.
