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.”

Academics network

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