Ciara is proud to be Sunnybank’s first trustee that has a learning disability. She has worked for Mencap since 1999 and now works full-time as a Campaigns Support Officer and is a Mencap media spokesperson and chairs two inclusion groups.
Ciara worked on Mencap’s General Election campaign, Hear My Voice, encouraging people with a learning disability to vote. She thinks it is important that MPs and people who have the power to make important decisions learn about issues that affect people with a learning disability. Ciara is also passionate about seeing people with learning disabilities in the media.
Having visited Kites Club as part of the Hear My Voice campaign, Ciara began volunteering at Kites Club before becoming a trustee. She continues to volunteer at the club and is heavily involved in the monthly pen-friend corner.
Ciara is happily married to Mark, and enjoys spending her free time going to the theatre, singing, and seeing her family.
