Adults with learning disabilities in Cromer can put their questions on national and local budget cuts to MP Norman Lamb at a special event.
The North Norfolk MP will be with members of Opening Doors, the Norfolk-based self-advocacy organisation for people with learning disabilities,
between 1.30pm and 2.30pm on Friday, March 9 at Merchants Place.
Opening Doors runs self-advocacy group in Diss, Norwich and Cromer where adults with learning disabilities are in charge, making decisions about how the groups run and what topics are discussed.
Cromer self-advocates began looking at issues relating to politics and how this affected their daily lives two years ago when they hosted an event to teach people about elections.
