Free webinar on navigating the 2024 General Election for people with support needs

National social care charity, Community Integrated Care, will be hosting a free webinar next week, on Tuesday 11th June at 2pm, to provide support and guidance for people who draw on social care, and the people who support them, ahead of the 2024 General Election.

Hosted on the charity’s award-winning activity platform www.What-To-Do.co.uk, Community Integrated Care’s Chief Executive Officer, Jim Kane, will be joined by people supported by the charity and former MP and Care Minister, Phil Hope, for an informative and interactive learning experience.

Around 1.5 million people in the UK have a learning disability, with many people still facing barriers to vote. The event will explore how to empower people who access social care so that they understand their rights around voting and how to take part in the 2024 General Election.

It is hoped that the hour-long event will simplify politics and the voting process, make the General Election more accessible and provide tips and guidance on how to support people to access their right to vote.

The special webinar is free to join, and no pre-booking is required. Attendees should visit www.What-To-Do.co.uk to access the joining link for the webinar on the day.

Jim Kane said, “At Community Integrated Care, we want everyone who has support needs to feel informed and empowered to have their say and use their vote in the upcoming General Election – but we know that the process can sometimes feel overwhelming.”

“Our upcoming webinar is designed to provide guidance and insights for anyone who draws on social care, as well as those who support them, so that they feel confident ahead of election day. We’re delighted to have the former Care Minister, Phil Hope, join us on the day to share his expertise and insights, and to help us break down any barriers to the voting process.”
