How Learning Disability England shares news


Learning Disability England shares news and information in 3 ways.


We share information about important national policy, member projects and campaigns on this news feed on the website.

We also have guest blogs and vlogs (video blogs) on this news feed where members can share their views and ideas with others.

If you are interested in writing a guest blogplease email lisa.watchorn@LDEngland.org.uk.


We send out a weekly newsletter to members every Monday morning by email.

The newsletter has information and events from Learning Disability England, members and partners.

And a section about latest government updates.


Members and partners can send in information they want included in the newsletter.

It should be sent to lisa.watchorn@LDEngland.org.uk by 12 noon on Thursday to be included in the following week’s newsletter.

Content for newsletters should be no more than 2 short sentences in plain English and a link for people to find out more.


Please note we cannot guarantee that your item will go into the newsletter.

Sometimes there are too many items for a particular week.

And some weeks the newsletter is about just 1 thing that is very important to members.

We have to make choices about what to include so that the newsletter has a good mix of things for all members.


We also share information from members and partners on our social media accounts.

Learning Disability England has a Twitter and a Facebook account.

We can share more things on social mediathan in the newsletter.

So we may be able to share something on social media even if there is not space in the newsletter.


There are some things that Learning Disability England will not usually share.

We do not share fundraising activities or requests for donations.


We do not share general vacancies. For example support worker jobs.

But we will share specialist roles, especially if they are aimed at people with lived experience.


We cannot share every request for help with research or every survey.

But we will do our best to share research and surveys that are of national importance and will directly improve or affect the lives of people with learning disabilities, their families and the people who support them.


We do not generally share events and conferences where there is a cost for the ticket.
