Treat me well Campaign
We are campaigning to transform how the NHS treats people with a learning disability in hospital. Will you join us? Find out more at www.mencap.org.uk/treatmewell
If you would like to find out more – and maybe join the Croydon Treat me well group – please come to the Know Your Rights workshop.
It is on Wednesday 12th September at Croydon Mencap’s offices in Thornton Heath. This workshop is open to anyone with a learning disability living in Croydon, who would like to know more about their rights when they are in hospital, and their families and supporters. Please see the poster for details.
There is also a follow up workshop on Wednesday 3rd October for those who want to get directly involved with the Treat me well campaign.

Robin Plays Chords
Robin Jax’s exploits as RobinPlaysChords have been built on a slow but steady sonic development. Building on the release of 2014’s Teardrop Girl-Star EP, 2017’s Teardrop Girl-Star LP – which was recorded in studios in the UK and Ukraine – is the culmination of six years of fine tuning a remarkably focused sound. Gentle shimmering textures and jagged distortion embrace each other warmly. Robin sings words that beckon you closer, to come forward across seemingly impassable distances. RobinPlaysChords has previously opened for the likes of The Irrepressibles and Thomas Truax, as well as appearing at Tramlines Festival and playing shows in mainland Europe.
Looks like a smashing night out, so please share with your friends and all the people you support.
Please make plans to and make the changes to staff support plans so that the person you are supporting can choose when they want to go home right up until the last big choon…
