MENCAP Hold Workshop at Lewisham Islamic Centre
“For Teachers and Parents of Children with Mental Health Disabilities.”
On Wednesday the 4th of May Lewisham Islamic Centre organised a workshop by Mencap Lewisham for Staff and Parents.
Lewisham Mencap is a charity that works with people with learning disabilities to change laws, challenge prejudices, and offer support to allow them live their lives as they choose. The Workshop was delivered by Mary Olaniyi who is the Coordinator and Family Advisor for Lewisham Mencap.
The workshop was very beneficial as it gave attendees an insight into what services are available for people with learning disabilities, and also how Staff and Parents could best access these services and support.
Lewisham Islamic Centre understands the great importance Islam places on supporting the vulnerable and needy in the Community. In a statement of his, Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said:
‘Allah gives support and help to those who support and help the weak and needy amongst you’.
Lewisham Islamic Centre would like to extend its thanks and gratitude to everyone who attended this workshop and especially to Mary Olaniyi from Lewisham Mencap for delivering a very beneficial workshop.
