The Scottish Commission for Learning Disability (SCLD) is an independent charitable organisation for the learning disability sector. We are ambitious for change - our vision is for a Scotland where people with learning disabilities are included and respected as equal citizens.
We are a strategic partner to our principal funders, the Scottish Government and work with them to support and evaluate interventions and delivery projects and drive improvement.
SCLD collaborates with a wide range of stakeholders including commissioners, providers, researchers, advocates and people with learning disabilities and carers. Established in 2001, we are able to use our experience of working with those who are delivering and experiencing change on the ground, to provide advice to policy makers to improve the lives of people with learning disabilities.
