Learning Disability England is the first.

We are the first membership organisation bringing together people with learning disabilities, families, professionals and organisations. By working together we can achieve more.

What our members say…

All our members come from different places but there are core beliefs that we all share.

  • LDE member

    “Learning Disability England is inspired by family-led campaigns like #JusticeforLB. We know how important families and friends are in fighting for the rights of people with learning disabilities and that’s why they are equal partners in LDE.”
  • “I was invited to come to meetings and events and get involved with Learning Disability England and it made me feel important. I feel that LDE gives people with learning disabilities a voice and a platform to be heard and taken seriously.”
  • “Progress for people with learning disabilities and their families will only happen in these difficult times if everyone works together. LDE offers a way of doing this that can be an effective and representative voice of learning disabilities.”

Our academics

Our growing group of academic members are providing us with up-to-date facts that help us campaign on the things that matter.
