Our History

People Matters was founded in 2002 by Maureen Bielska and a group of learning disabled people. During 2012 in celebration of being established for ten years we produced a review of our work. Have a look we think you will like what you see. 10 yr review

We have always taken on challenges so we can create opportunities that really make a difference to our members lives

Over the years we have evaluated our Teens and Twenties Project in different ways most recently using graphics and previously a video was made. We thought you might like to see what has been done

On 20th August we held our first awayday since the new board of directors was appointed. Feedback at the end of the day was that it was helpful and that we should do this again. Becky our chair has now written to everyone as a follow up to the day. See her letter  below All+staff+and+volunteers+letter+Sep+13.protected  Papers and pictures from the day can be found at the links on this page. It would be great if everyone could look at these either for the first time or again to find out about/reflect on what we did.
