This years theme is about friendships, people with a learning disability can find it difficult to make friends, and still often face isolation and exclusion from everyday activities.

You can support Learning Disability Week which runs fromĀ 20th – 26th JuneĀ by getting involved in the following:

Mencap work with people with a learning disability to change laws, challenge prejudice and support them to live their lives as they choose.

Their work includes:

  • providing advice through their helplines and websites
  • campaigning for the changes that people with a learning disability want
