This year’s Learning Disability Week takes place 15-21 June.
Our Hear my voice campaign has successfully grabbed the attention of more than 370 political candidates who have said they are listening to the issues affecting people with a learning disability and their families.
But do you want to know something scary?
There are still so many politicians and people in power who don’t know what a learning disability is.
For this year’s Learning Disability Week we want that to change – and we need your support to do it. We want to reach out to the newly-elected politicians and people in power, and tackle the myths and misconceptions about learning disability that fuel the prejudice and inequality.
We want you to share your stories about what learning disability means to you. Will you join us?
If you are a Mencap local group, supporter, or someone with a learning disability, watch this space for more information about Learning Disability Week 2015!
