Barod at the All Wales People First Conference

Barod at the All Wales People First Conference


All Wales People First held their annual conference in Cardiff this week.
Never Mind the Politics What about Advocacy was a chance for the members to write their manifesto to campaign at the Welsh Assembly elections in 2016.

People First conferences are always really exciting and energy filled events. We've been involved in many over the years as participants, organisers and speakers.

This years event was no exception. it was full of experienced and skilled self advocates from across Wales. It's a chance for sharing ideas and recharging campaigning batteries, especially important with the tough times groups are facing.

Barod was asked to run two discussion groups talking about what it's like to be a young person with a learning disability in Wales in 2016.

Alan and Simon made a short film to talk about setting up and running the groups.
