We believe all people with a learning disability should have the same access to healthcare and treatment as everybody else.

On average in the UK, people with a learning disability experience poorer health and healthcare than the rest of the general population. Find out how you or a loved one can access the healthcare you're entitled to. 

How to get the support you need

Contact the Learning Disability Helpline, our advice and support line, for guidance and information about what support we can offer you.

Or why not take a look at our online community? This is a place for parents and family carers of people with a learning disability to share experiences, advice and support.
