    Story

    Helens son Jordan is 27 years old and has a profound learning disability. There have recently been many improvements to hospital care for people with learning disabilities. Sadly this has not always been the case for Jordan who has needed frequent hospital admissions. He has experienced very negative, quite shocking experiences in the past. Jordan is unable to communicate verbally and is totally reliant on those supporting him to advocate. Jordan wasn't valued as a person. Staff didn't see Jordan, they just saw his disability.

    Paula is a learning disability nurse and has spent many years supporting people with learning disabilities to access health care settings. Paula has seen first hand the impact the Paul Ridd foundation has had in lobbying and awareness raising of the needs of people with learning disabilities in both primary and secondary care settings across Wales. The Paul Ridd foundation support the learning disability liaison nurses in our local hospitals with their programmes of education of hospital staff and provide our hospitals with a means of identifying people with learning disabilities coming through their systems. Their input is invaluable to the continual improvement of care......for all vulnerable groups.

    Jayne and Jonathan set up the Paul Ridd Foundation as a legacy to their brother Paul who died in hospital as a result of neglect. Now thanks to the work they are doing, changes are being made across Wales to improve hospital care for people with learning disabilities. We value the work being done by this local charity and we want to fundraise to support the work they are doing.

    Please take some time to watch Jayne and Jonathans video on the link below. You can also read about their ongoing work.

      Just over a week to go now and the last big run is over with 😍 We didn't imagine raising over our target so early when we set out and that's without our offline donations. It looks quite possible to be nearer £1000 than £500. Thank you all so much. It means such a lot and really does inspire us to keep going. Helen Lyn and Paula xxx

We've managed to thank everyone I'm sure via text or message but to our anonymous donor we would like to give heartfelt thanks. We were messaging each other late Sunday night whilst in bed because we were so thrilled! The work being carried out by Jayne,Jonathan,Debbie and all their team is amazing. Not forgetting the learning disability nurses as well. Thank you! Paula, Lyn and Helen xxx
