Rights Round Table

A project from Skills for People, for people with learning disabilities and/or autism, and their family carers, who live in Newcastle and North Tyneside.

Right Round Table logoWe talk and learn about our rights, especially those affected due to the Covid-19 pandemic:

  • Getting the help you need.
  • Your rights when you go to a GP, or hospital, appointment.
  • Your right to an Annual Health Check and flu jab.
  • Getting out and about, safely.

And more…

We want to hear from YOU about what is working well, and what needs to change.

When do we meet? Every Monday from 2.30pm – 3.30pm
