CELEBRATING MAKATON FRIENDLY NORTHWICH

By October 7, 2019No Comments

It was fantastic to come together last Thursday, 3rd October, at the Stateside Bar & Kitchen to celebrate and reflect on the triumph that is Northwich becoming Makaton Friendly.

We shared some wonderful words and some delicious food with the businesses, charity groups and community members who have worked with CDSSG to help Northwich gain its Makaton friendly status.

Northwich has made its services accessible to Makaton users by training over 200 people from 30 local businesses in the town, with the Northwich Business Improvement District and Cheshire Down’s Syndrome Support Group leading on the project.

Northwich is also the first town in the North West to achieve the status!
