PEOPLE with learning disabilities, and their families and friends, are being invited to a series of information days, hosted by Devon County Council during Learning Disability Week.

The free events will focus on safety in the community and the support that is available for people with learning disabilities. One of them is taking place at the Barnstaple Hotel, Barnstaple, from 10am to 3pm on Wednesday, June 24.

A range of services that support people with learning disabilities will be represented at each event, so visitors can find out what support there is available locally.

Devon County Council's services will be represented, with information about accommodation and support; employment training and training to equip people with independent life skills.
