Margaret supports ENABLE Scotland

Margaret Burgess MSP recently met with North Ayrshire activists from ENABLE Scotland as the Scottish Parliament marked the charity's 60th anniversary.

ENABLE Scotland works with people who have learning disabilities, and members of the charity took the opportunity of their visit to parliament to raise with MSPs the pressing issues facing those requiring ongoing support.

Margaret Burgess told the3towns, “I was delighted to be able to attend ENABLE Scotland’s 60th anniversary celebration at the Parliament. It was a real pleasure to see so many people from communities across Scotland, including North Ayrshire.”

Mrs Burgess welcomed a Scottish Parliament motion recognising the rights of people who have learning disabilities, adding, “I was delighted to wear my ENABLE Scotland tartan to raise awareness throughout Learning Disability Week.”

The SNP MSP for Cunninghame South wished ENABLE Scotland and all its supporters “another successful 60 years”.

Peter Scott, the charity’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “Our anniversary mission to give every person with a learning disability the choice and control to live their lives how they choose was again brought into sharp focus by our recent pilgrimage to the Scottish Parliament.”
