Learning Disability Week 2016

Learning Disability Week 2016 is coming soon!

This year’s theme is about friendships and relationships – we want everyone to make a new friend this Learning Disability Week (20-26 June).

As we mark the 50th anniversary of our Gateway leisure clubs, we’re celebrating the vital role friendships play in people with a learning disability being included in society.

People with a learning disability can find it difficult to make friends, and still often face isolation and exclusion from everyday activities. We want this to change, and we need your support to make it happen.
