What We Do

Learning Disability England links groups and organisations that support families that include an adult with a learning disability.

Our key objective is to work together to promiate better life chances for families that include someone with a learning disability.

By linking groups and organisations we give a national focus to a wide range of policy issues concerning family carers of adults with a learning disability. These family carers increasingley include people with a learning disability who are family carers in their own right.

Learning Disability England will:

Learning Disability England has agreed to:

  • produce a monthly newsletter that will include information that is specifically of interest to family carers
  • maintain and update the resources hosted on the NFCN website
