Experts Through Experience Film

On 4th October, an event was held to showcase the success of the various Community Voices Projects.  These are Big Lottery funded projects, administered by GAVO, which aim to provide people with the opportunity to have their voices heard in the development and delivery of local statutory services.

In October 2013, Caerphilly People First and Blaenau Gwent People First  launched our project, which is called ‘Experts Through Experience’.  The project aims to expand the involvement of people with learning disabilities in the decision-making processes that affect their lives.

In order to highlight the achievements of the various projects it was decided to produce films to feature the work carried out and the journey of the people involved. Here is the video that was produced by the Caerphilly People First and Blaenau Gwent People First ‘Experts through Experience’ project.
