Learning Disability Week 2017
This week, organisations like ours are coming together from across the UK to support Mencap’s Learning Disability Week.
The focus this year is on employment for adults with learning disabilities. This is a topic particularly close to our hearts, as we’ve been doing a lot of work on this very subject over the past year.
Since mid 2016 we’ve been running a program aimed entirely at employment. It’s designed to help people identify their strengths and build on them, help them gain new skills, confidence, self esteem and work skills.
We believe that rewarding work can and should be available to everyone, and we’re really happy that so many organisations are coming together to raise awareness about this important issue!
