Self-Advocacy Groups – with KeyRing

Another way to get involved is to come along and join one of the KeyRing monthly Self-Advocacy Groups. This is a place for anyone with a learning disability or autism to come and have a cuppa and a chat with others.  If you would like to find out more about self-advocacy these relaxed meetings are a great way to make new friends and make a difference!

Self-advocacy groups meet every month for about 2 hours.

  • Scarborough – at Scarborough Library.
  • Ryedale and Whitby – please contact Karen (details below)
