Scotland’s national Learning Disability Week 2018 will take place from Monday 14th – Sunday 20th May, organised by the Scottish Commission for Learning Disability (SCLD).
And if any organisations in the Scottish Borders are planning events to celebrate the week – do let us know!
Next year marks the ‘Year of Young People’ in Scotland, and this is reflecting in the the theme for Learning Disability Week.
My Generation’ will focus the country’s attention on the experiences of young people with learning disabilities in Scotland.
The theme is also a great way for older people with learning disabilities to highlight how much Scotland has changed during their lifetime. SCLD will be encouraging people with learning disabilities of all ages to reflect on the things that summed up their younger lives.
Nominations are open now for Scotland’s Learning Disability Awards, which offer a chance to celebrate the stories and achievements of people with learning disabilities and the people who support them.
