Norwich Advocacy Group
A disability group has received a generous donation and support from a Norwich supermarket.
Sainsbury’s in Pound Lane donated £200 to the
Norwich Advocacy Group of Opening Doors.
The group is run by people with learning disabilities for people with learning disabilities and meets every other Tuesday at lunchtime.
The group is facilitated by Opening Doors, but the group’s management team plans and decides which topics they wish to discuss at meetings.
Topics have included diet, voting, LGBT, anti-discrimination, public transport and diabetes.
Dan Barrett, chairman of the group, said: “We promote people to make their own decisions and speak up with the aim that they feel more confident, make new friends and feel supported in having their own say.
“Thank you Sainsbury’s Pound Lane for the donation. This money will boost our group and help us pay for equipment and communication cards which we use.”
