The Scottish Commission for Learning Disability (SCLD) is the lead strategic partner to the Scottish Government in the delivery of learning disability strategy and policy.
We are an intermediary organisation for the learning disability sector in Scotland, and we are committed to finding new and better ways to improve the lives of people with learning disabilities.
We work across a range of policy issues, such as Employability, Parenting, Housing and Advocacy. You can find out more about what we do and view our publications on our Policy Issues page.
Learning Disability Week Highlights
Scotland’s national Learning Disability Week 2018 took place from Monday 14th – Sunday 20th May. You can see all the highlights from the week, including our finalist's videos and photos from the Learning Disability Awards. Make sure you follow the hashtag #LDWeek2018 to see all our social media activity.
SCLD is currently running a guest blog series which follows asset-based approaches to developing learning disability strategy locally across Scotland.
So far we've had Alan Roberts from Fife Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) and Jenny Rae from Aberdeen City HSCP, who have each written about their own experiences.
