On Tuesday 21 January in Watford we ran an event for the launch of the new and improved Local Offer website.
We brought the Local Offer website to life by inviting SEND organisations to attend so they could speak to parents, carers and professionals, and we could demonstrate the kind of support you can find online on our website.
The event exceeded our expectations, with not only a very large number of people attending but with the large number of diversity of those people. From parents and guardians to teachers, physiotherapists, family support workers, those who run or attend support groups and many others.
The Purple All Stars
One of the highlights of the event was an amazing singing and dancing set from Hertfordshire’s own Purple All Stars. They are a group of people with learning disabilities who want to help get better healthcare for people with learning disabilities. They use creative arts to get their health messages across. With the room packed to way beyond capacity spilling out of the main doors with eager viewers they wowed us with their amazing set that in the end had people on their feet with a standing ovation. https://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/services/adult-social-services/disability/learning-disabilities/my-health/purple-all-stars.aspx
