Andre tells us about her role with Reps on Board

The MacIntyre Reps on Board support people with a learning disability across Derbyshire to do their job as Partnership Board Reps, ensuring they have the skills needed to carry out their tasks and responsibilities. Both MacIntyre and Derbyshire County Council support the project, and there are currently 19 Reps across Derbyshire.

This year the group turned 10 years old.

In the film Andre, one of the Reps on Board, explains how she is proud to be a Rep and that being part of the group means that she can help to communicate for people who don’t use words to communicate.

    Andre has been a Rep for 9 years and is a huge team player. When she was first elected it took us several months to convince her to come to any meetings, as she was worried about coping. Now she wouldn’t miss one.
    Andre remembers how hard it was for her to adjust and is always the first person to step forward and help new Reps who join us.
    Well done Andre.
