On Tuesday 14th of June we launched Learning Disability England (LDE) at the House of Lords with about 150 people crammed in a marquee on the River Thames. There were so many people there it was hard to speak to everyone individually.
Baroness Sheila Hollins made a good speech and introduced me.
I started by cracking a few jokes at the beginning to relax myself and also everyone in the audience. I welcomed everyone and gave my speech.
In my speech I said:
“We have a good team of people to make this happen
We are in this together and also stronger together
For far too long we have been working separately and our voices have not been strong enough on our own to make change
To make change we need to work with others.”
It was great to finally launch Learning Disability England after working on it for so long.
