Steve McCabe MP supports campaign to make the voices of people with a learning disability heard

Steve McCabe MP is backing Mencap’s Hear my voice campaign which is about empowering people with a learning disability and their families to make sure their voices are heard by their local MPs and candidates in the lead up to the May 2015 General Election.

Steve met with campaigners who are calling for better support for children and their families and confirmed his support for the campaign by signing-up to say, “I’m listening”, on the new campaign website: www.hear-my-voice.org.uk  

There are 1.4 million people with a learning disability in the UK but many feel they are not listened to by those in power and the issues they that are important to them – like hate crime, better healthcare and education – are often not talked about.

Steve McCabe said:

“People with a learning disability and their families are as much a part of our society as anyone else and deserve to have their voices heard on the issues that matter to them. I am listening and I hope that many more MPs and potential candidates will do the same by getting on board with Mencap’s Hear my voice campaign.”
