Your health, your care – An event for people with learning difficulties & their supporters

September 6, 2017 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm


An event for people with learning difficulties and their supporters, covering:

  • Human rights and health
  • Health Action Plans

This event is a partnership between York People First, York Human Rights City and Healthwatch York.

We know people with learning difficulties do not have as good health as other people. This event will share details of things that can help look after your health. We also want to hear about your experiences. Can you access the health support you need?

The event is free, but please let us know you are coming. Call Healthwatch York on 01904 621133 or email healthwatch@yorkcvs.org.uk.
