We are ambitious for change. Our vision is for a Scotland where people who have learning disabilities are included and respected as equal citizens.

SCLD is an independent charitable organisation. We are a strategic partner to Scottish Government in the delivery of Scotland’s learning disability strategy, The keys to life. We bring together influential member organisations, people with learning disabilities and their families and carers to:

  • identify and share evidence and good practice
  • be creative - finding new and better ways to improve life for people with learning disabilities
  • change public attitudes towards learning disabilities
