Speaking up for Ourselves

Abergavenny People First is a special group for adults with learning disabilities.

It was started by Advocacy Action Wales and Ellen Mc Combe with the help of  John, Steven, Phyllis and some other people.

It is part of All Wales People First and is all about helping people to have their say.

All Wales People First is the united voice of self-advocacy groups and all people with learning disabilities in Wales. It shares knowledge and information to achieve equal rights and a positive image.
