Paralympic and Special Olympic athletes have been invited to Rugby for the launch of a ‘Learning Ability Foyer’ for young people with learning disabilities.
Paralympic table tennis champion Victoria Bromley and Special Olympics athlete and board member Greg Silvester are joining the celebrations at the Mayday Trust in Woodside Park on May 1.
Mayday chief executive Pat McArdle said: “Under the new banner of ‘learning ability’, we are leading the way with our focus on talents and strengths, rather than needs and disabilities.
We have invited our Olympians because we are using the same model to achieve aspirations, with no limit on goals and potential.”
The Learning Ability Foyer provides an alternative choice to residential schooling.
Designed for all levels of learning disabilities, the foyer offers activities including a job café, voice and drama sessions, coaching on social media skills, and a chance to explore sprituality.
