i have a learning disabilty myself
i Think There Should be plenty of New Gateway Clubs in and around the Clacton and other Tendring areas in the Future Badly. They could do with 4 in Clacton. 1 in Jaywick. 1 in Jaywick Sands. 1 in Frinton on Sea. 2 in Walton on Naze. 2 in Harwich. 1 in Brightlingsea. 1 in St Oysths. And 1 in Little Clacton. Now the reason why i am suggesting all this is because. There was only 1 Gateway Club in Clacton. it only opened once a month. And you only got very Limited Time meeting people. So i Think they Should Reopen it. And let it open Twice a week. They could do with a New Gateway Club with a New Big Hall which Should Hold over 150 Members or more. Now that would give them something to do more than nothing. Play Games like Snooker, Darts, Football and Daytrips etc.
Just to ask you? Are you running the SNAP photoograph competition this year?
I have a fantastic photo of my daughter (who has a severe and complex learning disability) in a zube ball and feel it is worthy of an entry in your 2012 SNAP competition.
Please advise how to enter and the entry date.
Thank you for your message, but I'm afraid we have put Snap! on hold for 2012 so we can think about different ways to run the competition so that it costs Mencap less money while also involving more people with a learning disability.
We hope to bring back Snap! in 2013, bigger and better than before! Please feel free to post your photo on our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/Mencap
All the best,
We at the Vale school would like to enter Snap 2012 (as we have the last two years) can you please send me the info.
I teach adults with learning disabilities Photography. Will this competition be running this year?
I have sent you an email asking if we could have some his res pictures sent as we want to use a few on our main learning disability nursing awareness poster, this will be shown at Positive Choices in Edinburgh and hopefully across the UK at local colleges. I have sent you reference numbers of the pictures needed (6 of them).
Thank you for your request to use the Snap photos, we'd be delighted to promote our work at the Positive Choices conference. If you would like to let me know which images I will send them low res.
Please email me at Katy.firstname.lastname@example.org
The pictures are superb. A group of us are setting up a website that will aim to encourage more people to think about working as a learning disability nurse. Our work is to be presented at Edinburgh University in March 2012 at the Positive Choices Conference. We would love to have permission to use some of the winning pics on the website, we would reference that they had come from Mencap.
Once again many thanks for the SNAP photo competition, I love entering this great competition along with your Christmas card competition you really go to town with these competitions, you know that the current climate that we are now all facing but when it all comes down to MENCAP we really do roll our sleeves up,
So once again MENCAP thank you all very much for giving us these two great competitions, I really do look forward to them,
I am so very proud of my cousin Justine Parker and her winning photograph. She has achieved so much in her life and has such a great time at all her clubs and groups. Well done Mencap for the fantastic work you do promoting the achievements of disabled people in the UK. Keep up the good work.
I have to say the my hero picture is my favourite. To see a person so devoted and loving and what a fabulous photograph. It definitely gets my vote , hope it wins.
I am so excited to have won Gold in the Active Together category with a photo of my son Jamie. I'm even more excited to see my photograph in the exhibition and to go to the award ceremony. It's a shame my son won't be able to come but he'd have to finish school early to come along. As the photo is of him it would've been nice but I'll take him to the exhibition at the weekend to see his picture all big in Soho Square. Well done to everyone who won!! It's a great feeling! x
Very proud of my niece Brooke Hodgeson - Fantastic and well Done !
Well done to everyone who entered the photo competition you must be all very proud of yourselves even if anyone who did not win and still entered like I did.
Once again well done to everybody,
I will be entering the competition again this year as I have got some great photos of what I took when I was in Great Yarmouth towards the back end of last year still left on my camera.
I think that the snap competition is a great competition to enter,
I feel grat that I won the Future Film Maker award.
I really enjoyed making the animaton.
I was nervous and excited but happy to go on stage.
I was surprised to see some famous people there.
was good to share everyone's work.
Gemma, Thank you for organising such a wonderful 'Snap' exhibition and awards ceremony last week - you and your Mencap team did a great job on the night for which Chris, David and I thank you all, sincerely. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience which judging by the quality of the pictures on display, the delight and enthusiasm of the photographers and the way it was all received by the invited guests, was a great success. Chris has already been busy putting his 'Snap' prize to good use, snapping away with his new Fugi camera at his first rock festival over the weekend. Thank you and once again, well done!
Thank-you yet again for a memorable evening, it was nice to see some familiar faces from last year; words can
Very good exhibition you all must be very proud of yourselves to take these lovely photos well done to all of you,
