Easington MP Grahame Morris attended a Royal Mencap Society reception to celebrate Learning Disability Week.

At the reception Mr Morris spoke to people with a learning disability, carers and family members to talk about their personal experiences, the challenges they face and the changes they want to see in society.

There are 1.4million people with a learning disability in the UK, but many feel they are not listened to by those in power.

Mr Morris 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.”
