Our Aims and Key Documents

Learning Disability England is bringing people and organisations together to create a movement for change where people with learning disabilities, families, friends and paid supporters come together on an equal basis.

As a membership organisation, members work together to build a world where people with learning disabilities have good lives with equal choices and opportunities as others.

We can’t name you all, but you are all very important.

Learning Disability England is a membership organisation where people with learning disabilities, families, friends and people that work in services come together on an equal basis to share knowledge and create a movement for change together.

Every member of the Learning Disability England movement has signed up to our aims and values.

Members work together to build a world where people with learning disabilities have good lives with equal choices and opportunities as others.

We will always remember that:

• Learning Disability England’s membership has people who share the same aims but might do things in different ways.
• Members must agree with our four aims and act in line with them and the values.
• We do not expect any Learning Disability England member to be perfect. We do expect them to be trying to do things better and learn from mistakes.

But if there is a big problem that we cannot sort out, the member might have to leave Learning Disability England.
