Learning Disability Week 2020

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year's Learning Disability Week took place online from 15 to 21 June.

The theme of the week was the importance of friendships during lockdown

We wanted to show the importance of friendships for people with a learning disability, in helping to tackle isolation.

We also wanted to hear the different ways you've been maintaining your friendships during this unusual time.
