Visit from Marsha de Cordova MP.
We talked about all sorts of stuff - benefits, Grenfell, work for people with learning disabilities, support and care packages. It went really well.
Amy said, 'I was impressed with her responses to our questions'.
'It is good to have MPs come in - she was patient and took her time, and gave us the time to speak. She also tried hard to give us clear answers to our questions'.
Richie said 'I thought it was good that she understands what life is like as a Disabled person - she said good things about people looking at you and not making assumptions about what your needs are and whether you have a disability.'
Amy and Richie: 'Some people's disabilities or impairments are hidden so it is good to talk about this and make people think about hidden disabilities, and take care of each other'.
'She said things we liked about the world around us making barriers - the society needs to change, not us!'
'We would like Marsha to come back! And to see more Disabled people in parliament and speaking up for our rights!'
Amy and Richie
