Scottish Learning Disability Week 2020

Scottish Learning Disability Week 2020 took place between Monday 18th – Sunday 24th May. The theme was ‘My Environment – My Place, my planet’ which emphasised the important role that people with learning disabilities can play in shaping and helping their local environments to flourish. The theme also helped to raise awareness of the importance of including the voices of people with learning disabilities in discussions and decisions about the wider environment and climate change.

We will be launching the theme for Scottish Learning Disability Week 2021 soon… watch this space!
