We developed the Consultant role because although we provide paid work for a lot of people with learning disabilities, we wanted to offer a further opportunity for growth and development within the charity.
Being a MLMC consultant provides our members with recognition for their skills and the chance to be offered more work.
Whilst also providing new members something to aim for as they gradually get involved in more of our projects and work opportunities.
Our current Consultants are:
Pam has been chair of the MLMC trustees for 3 years, before stepping down to become a Consultant. She is one of our most experienced Power Up Trainers, co-facilitates the Oxford group, works as an MLMC Expert by Experience and inspector, and helps to run Stingray nightclub.
