Drop in to Signposts on Monday 15th June between 11am and 2:30pm for a cup of tea and a piece of cake and to celebrate the launch of new computers at the centre’s cyber suite. You can also find out about the contributions that people with learning disabilities make to our community.

Signposts is hosting an open day to launch their new cyber suite on Monday 15th from 11am-2:30pm as part of the National Learning Disability Awareness Week 2015. Signposts is the local charity that supports adults with a learning disability and other vulnerable people by providing advice, information, support, and a variety of fun and practical workshops and classes.

Thanks to the generosity of a local Burgess Hill family and Mencap, Signposts has been able to purchase six brand new computers and bright new office furniture to help make the Old Post Office Resource Centre an accessible and welcoming place that people will want to come to. At the open day, there will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the computer suite at 12:30. All members of the public are invited to drop in for the launch and a party, including tea and cake, a display and demonstration of arts and crafts, and information about local services for people with a learning disability.

“Hear My Voice” is the theme for Learning Disability Awareness Week 2015, with an emphasis on showcasing the contributions that people with a learning disability make in the community, as well as informing newly-elected politicians about the issues that matter most to people with learning disabilities.

Everyone is invited to drop in for a cup of tea and piece of homemade cake and to find out about Signposts’ range of services and the valuable work that our members are doing in Burgess Hill and Haywards Heath.
