Episode 11,  Jun 11, 2021, 11:01 AM

As part of Learning Disability Week 2021, Managing Director, Andy Tonner, talks in this podcast to Shaun Webster MBE about what he enjoys and contributes as a trustee of Keyring, a national charity supporting people with learning disabilities, as well as what he thinks organisations could do to onboard and support people with a learning disability onto their board. 

Shaun is a board member at health and social care charity, Keyring, and an international project worker for human rights charity, Change, where he works on projects tackling issues experienced by people with a learning disability and autism, raising awareness and changing attitudes to stereotypes. Shaun uses his own experiences growing up with learning disabilities to improve the lives of others, providing training and support to those with learning disabilities and their families around  mental health, employment, parenting, sex and relationships and LGBTQ issues. He was awarded an MBE in 2015 for providing these services.
