Damian Hinds, local MP sees FitzRoy staff in action

Published: September 26, 2017

Damian Hinds, MP for East Hampshire, took time out of his busy schedule to visit a local service for people with learning disabilities. The home in Liss, is run by FitzRoy, a Petersfield-based charity supporting people with a wide range of disabilities and autism.

Damian commented: “It was a privilege to visit the Whitegates View houses in Liss recently and see the work being done by FitzRoy, a charity dedicated to transforming lives for people with learning disabilities. With access to sports, arts and crafts as well as IT-enabled communication and learning support, FitzRoy staff help people develop skills and live as independently as possible. We’re certainly very fortunate to have such a brilliant organisation locally and to have FitzRoy’s head office in Petersfield.”

Anna Galliford, Chief Executive FitzRoy commented: â€œIt was great to see our local MP, Damian Hinds, finding the time to visit one of our services. He saw the expertise and skill required by FitzRoy support staff, as they facilitate people with a wide range of needs to live fulfilling lives. It is helpful for our MPs to understand the complexity of a support worker’s role and how hard they work to transform lives.
