AN informative event will help people discover more about learning disabilities.

Malvern Mencap is staging the event, at Malvern Library in Graham Road, and at Malvern Community Hospital in Worcester Road, from Monday to Friday, August 19 to 23 to mark Learning Disability Week.

They will provide information on important subjects, such as housing options, advocacy services and options for work and leisure.

Mike Bowker, of Malvern Mencap, said: “These displays will show local people how we try to help those with learning difficulties, their families and carers.”

This year, a key aim of the week is to strengthen networks of support. For more information, e-mail or call Malvern Mencap on 01684 574079.
