Hi, my name is Will.

I help co-facilitate the City of Oxford College group and recently I've started going to the Young Persons' group.

Usually, we meet our self-advocacy groups in person.

A big change is that we're doing them online.

It took a little bit of getting used to using Zoom but with help from Lisa we learned a few tricks to make it a little easier.

It's been nice seeing and talking to people outside of my family and work.

I’ve talked about the things that I’ve been up to.

And listened to what other's have been doing.

It's helped me come up with things to do for myself.

And I think we've helped each other through some tough times we've had .

Some of us are feeling a lot better than we were before the group started.

The Young Persons' group is specifically for young people which is something I really like.

It means we can speak about things that impact young people more.

In our last session, we’ve been speaking about how important youth voice is.

Especially the voices of young people with learning disabilities.

We’re going to work on a video for International Youth Day 2020 (12th August) to show just how important our voices are.

I think this is really going to help young people with disabilities be heard. I’m really looking forward to sharing this with everyone.

I think everyone should go to MLMC’s groups.
