Latest update (10/06/11): We have now submitted our petition which attracted over 3,000 signatures. Thank you to everyone who signed!
Lanarkshire Ace and PALS have launched a petition asking the Government to protect the benefits that people with learning disabilities, autism and Asperger's receive.
The petition was signed by Michael McCann MP at the Lanarkshire Ace meeting on Thursday 24th March 2011.
The full text of the petition is:
We urge the Government to maintain and protect the level of benefits that people with learning disabilities, autism and Asperger's receive.
As learning disabilities, autism and Asperger's are lifelong conditions, people who have them require this income to achieve and maintain a reasonable quality of life.
We trust that you will honour your pledge to protect the most vulnerable people in society.
Signed hard copies of the petition should be sent to the above address.
We have added a new section to the website which covers job vacancies and information on volunteering with Speak Out or PALS.
You can access the 'Jobs / Volunteering' section using the link at the top of the page or by clicking here.
The newsletter covers some of the work the group have done so far including their launch, the 'What About Us?' DVD, their peer education workshops and 'Your Game' 2009.
If you or someone you know would like to join PALS, or become a volunteer, please contact us at email@example.com or on 01355 230202.
We hope you enjoy reading the newsletter.
