Reps on Board is a learning and development project which began in 2007. It is funded jointly by MacIntyre and Derbyshire County Council.
The Reps have a learning disability and are active members of their local Partnership Boards. The project trains and develops the Reps to be good peer advocates. The group is a good point of reference for anyone who provides a service used by people with a learning disability across Derbyshire. Some Reps run their own local social/ self advocacy groups for others with a learning disability.
Reps on Board also has the Keeping Safe project, which is funded by Derbyshire County Council. The project delivers the Keeping Safe message to all adults with a learning disability across Derbyshire, with the help of a group of Champions who also have a learning disability. Champions help us to deliver hints and tips about keeping safe, through workshops, events and easy read leaflets. The Champions also play an active part in the ‘Safe Places’ work across Derbyshire.
