Making sure members are equal and heard

Equality is a big issue for people with a learning disability and Learning Disability England. That’s why we work hard to make sure every member is treated equally and their voice is heard.

A key way all members are treated equally is by giving them only one vote each on big Learning Disability England decisions.

So whether you are one person with a learning disability, a family member or friend, or a small or big organisation, you only get one vote.

Each member also has an equal vote on who should represent them on Learning Disability England’s Representative Body.

The Representative Body acts on the behalf of members and makes important decisions about what Learning Disability England says and does.

The Representative Body also plays a key role in deciding whether a member should leave or not when things go wrong.
