At our recent Committee Meeting, on Thursday 19th October, we were delighted to welcome Matt and Tracey Horder, and Bobby Singh as new members of the Torbay Mencap Committee.
During the meeting we heard all about the excellent work that is happening with Healthwatch Torbay in identifying solutions to the challenges that face the most vulnerable members of our community, when they are admitted to hospital. We were also inspired by Bobby Singh telling us all about the exciting prospect of the Changing Place that is being planned for Torbay Leisure Centre in the near future.
During our discussions, we explored opportunities for further Changing Places in Torbay, considering the proposal for the new Pavilion Development. Members discussed the wider community interest in this proposal and agreed to contact local stakeholders.
It was great to hear about the recent activities that have been happening with Coordin8 and the Hollacombe Community Resource Centre. It’s also amazing to see Torbay Phab Club are undertaking amazing fund raising activities; well done to Mark and the team. As a committee, we are so proud to support these wonderful groups.
