Zoom Conference on Social Care and the Law – 1st June
My name is Maurice Collins, I founded Kith and Kids 51 years ago (I have a daughter with severe learning disabilities). I, with some other parents, are putting on a zoom conference on the law regarding social care, with Professor Luke Clements, (one of the top legal advocates for LD), to catch up on the latest legal position. We are all fighting for the rights of our children and those in our care. I hope you and your membership would like to participate, it’s free of charge and also covers a new type of advocacy and how best to deal with local authorities, and get free legal advice from Disability Law. If you need to chat about it, my number is 07796 991140 or email firstname.lastname@example.org but please get it out to families you might feel of interest – just click on the attachment below, put it into the address bar and have them book a place if interested
By the way I was Chair of Haringey MENCAP for 23 years and vice chair of National for 3 years, so I have been around!!
One of our members, Thomas Corden, was a finalist (in the Young Artist of the Year category) in the Lord Lieutenants Awards. See the article in the Melton Times of 19th November.
Thomas has his own YouTube channel. Click here to see more of his remarkable talents.

Introducing our new Manager
Hello my name is Karen Hadden
I’d like to take the opportunity to introduce myself as the new Service Manager for Melton Mencap.
I have been made very welcome by the board of Trustees and the staff I have had the pleasure in meeting so far.
I know we are working in very uncertain times and having a change of Senior management during this period will be challenging.
I want to assure you that I am passionate about the work that Melton Mencap does and with the support I’ve already seen I envisage that the charity will continue to go from strength to strength.
I look forward to meeting everyone as time allows.
