This charity works with people with a learning disability to change laws and services, challenge prejudice and directly support thousands of people to live their lives as they choose.

Examples of their work include:

  • Supporting people with a learning disability to get a job or take a college course, or help them find a place of their own to live
  • Offering advice about things like respite care, individual budgets or transport services
  • Running residential/day care services and leisure groups that are so important to so many people with a learning disability, and their families and supporters
  • Supporting people with a learning disability to be part of their local communities
