MP Lucy Frazer visited a Swaffham Bulbeck charity on Friday to find out more about their work with people with disabilities.
Lucy Frazer visited Red2Green’s head office and met chief executive officer Nigel Fenner, chairman of trustees Jane Miller and service manager Sarah Flack as well as options clients (with a range of learning disabilities and support needs) as they took part in their morning’s activities. She also met some of the service users who have autism spectrum conditions and spoke to them about their experiences and progress at Red2Green.
They were then given the opportunity to ask the MP for South East Cambridgeshire about issues which affect their lives.
Lucy Frazer said: “It was a real pleasure to visit Red2Green, to spend time hearing about their work and to meet some of the people who benefit from it.
“I was able to see how adults with learning disabilities are helped to improve their skills and those I met told me how Red2Green is a safe place for them where they can share their thoughts and get help.”
CEO Nigel Fenner also raised concerns about making sure that increased social care funding also benefits people with disabilities and autism.
The charity Red2Green has been providing services to young people aged 16 plus and adults with learning disabilities and on the autistic spectrum across Cambridgeshire for almost 20 years.
