Mark Menzies MP Visits Queensway Park Farm

Mark Menzies MP praises One Fylde as ‘an exemplar in its field’ during visit to charity’s new flagship site

 

Mr Menzies, who has represented the borough since first being elected in 2010, described One Fylde as “an exemplar in its field” and congratulated the 400-strong organisation, which provides person-centred support, accommodation and exciting enterprises for adults with learning disabilities and autism across Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre.

 

The charity supports more than 230 individuals and its purpose is “to contribute to the wellbeing of everyone who is part of One Fylde, and to ensure that they are treated with respect and enabled to live the best life possible”.

 

Mr Menzies met staff, support workers and people supported by the charity after he was invited to visit its new Queensway Park Farm site, which held a showcase event over the summer, attended by Mayor of the Fylde, Councillor Cheryl Little, to help local residents and other stakeholders better understand the range of services it offers.

 

Mr Menzies said, “I can fully understand why it has been One Fylde’s most successful year to date and my sincere congratulations go to everyone involved.  This is a fantastic local success story, which we have every reason to be proud of.  One Fylde not only supports people with learning disabilities and autism, but the organisation also provides opportunities for the people it supports to live their fullest life possible. This includes providing employment opportunities through the charity’s enterprises.”

“One Fylde services are an outstanding example of showing the important contribution that people with learning disabilities and autism can and do make to society every day. One Fylde is an exemplar in its field, as well as integrating people into the community, empowering them to volunteer at other local charities such as Lytham Hall, and supporting other opportunities, such as presenting on One Fylde’s very own internet radio station”.

“I’d encourage people living in the Fylde to try the services offered by the One Fylde teams for both garden maintenance for households and recycling for businesses. By using any of these services, you’ll be supporting the amazing work of this local charity and enabling the opportunities for even more people with learning disabilities and autism."
