My Name is Maisie Plumb and I am the Co-lead of the Keep Safe group. I also chair all the meetings. I have been part of the Keep Safe group right from the start, I am really passionate about making sure people with learning disabilities feel safe in Northamptonshire. I train the new Keep Safe places all about the Keep Safe card and all about people with a learning disability.
My name is Richard Sherratt and I am a member of the Keep Safe group. I help train the Keep Safe places with Maisie. We have trained lots of places making us a good team. I joined the group as I was bullied when I lived independently. I told my story to police and was given a police award. I also spoke about how I was a victim of Hate Crime on BBC 1 in a documentary and Channel 4 News.
I am Sabrina, I was asked if I would like to be part of a DVD for Keep Safe, I was a young lady using a wheelchair being bullied. I enjoyed doing this, and asked if I could be part of the team. I was then elected on to the Learning Disability Partnership Board as a rep for Corby area. I also sell jewellery some of which I make. I really enjoy being involved and helping change things for people with a disability.
I am a parent carer and I am also the co-lead of the Keep Safe group with Maisie.
