Standing Up, Speaking Out
‘Standing Up, Speaking Out’ is the only group of which ALL members of Cardiff People First are members! Our group is planned and run TOTALLY by our members!
We have monthly meetings where members can have their say on any topic which they want to know more about. We go to conferences, marches and other events and we work in partnership with Vale People First’s ‘Real Lives’ group on our new project.
We are the Community Voices Team. We come from all different Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds. We enjoy going to events like the Multicultural Mela and Black History Month.
The Pink Ladies are a group of ladies with a learning disability. We meet up every month to talk about women's issues. We invite guest speakers to our meetings to talk about different things that affect ladies with a learning disability.
Men in Black
The Men in Black group is for all men over 18 with a learning disability in Cardiff.
We meet each month to talk about a range of issues that men may face and how we may over come them. These are chosen by the members, as it is YOUR group! We have guest speakers at our meetings and we also go on visits.
So if you are a man with a learning disability in Cardiff, then you are very welcome to join us!
The Golden Oldies is a group for people with a learning disability who are 55 or over.
