THE VOTING RIGHT
With the June 8th General Election looming, Manor Community (CQC outstanding) realised that clients needed help it they were to exercise their right to vote
and came up with this exciting initiative which they would like to share with the wider Care Community.
Sophie Chester-Glyn, from Manor says that it is really important that everyone, regardless of their disability is able to exercise their right to an opinion, their right to vote.
They have created this booklet which seeks to help service users understand the election process, what their rights are and what they need to do to vote. At the same time they are helping their staff to help their clients and offering support services.
This is a very new departure and Sophie would really like feedback on the booklet, whether it helps, whether you use it, how useful you find it......
