CSV - Involving people with a learning disability, mental health needs

Jemma Mindham, Area Manager working in the East of England for CSV responds to questions that explore how people with a learning disability are encouraged to claim their right to choice and opportunities to contribute within their communities. Jemma explains how the supported volunteer programme seeks to recognise the uniqueness of the individual, and what key management processes were put into place to facilitate this.
