What we do

Learning Disability England is a charity and membership organisation working to make life better with people with learning disabilities and their families.

Our work is in 5 main areas

  1. Informing and supporting our members
  2. Represent their priorities to inform policy and change attitudes
  3. Supporting good practice and finding solutions together
  4. Campaigning and influencing on what matters to people with learning disabilities
  5. Learning and supporting partners through projects and research

Learning Disability England’s core work is driven by members’ priorities.

Our members have said our 2018 – 2020 priorities should be:

  1. Supporting the development of housing choices
  2. Helping to make self-advocacy stronger
  3. Influencing funding decisions and understanding how it affects people’s lives
  4. Being part of the future social care thinking and design
