Learning Disability Week 2015

It's over for another year, but find out what happened!


Learning Disability Week (June 15-21) may be over for another year, but there’s still plenty you can do to support our work.

This year, we focused on the success of our Hear my voice campaign, which successfully grabbed the attention of 830 political candidates who said they’re listening to the issues affecting people with a learning disability and their families.

We want to do even more to make sure people in a powerful position know what a learning disability is.
