Meet Uno! Our Learning Disability Week Mascot

During 2018’s Learning Disability Week, we ran a mascot competition for people with learning disabilities to design a Learning Disability Week mascot for 2019 and beyond…

The winner was Stephen Dickson, a keen artist from Glasgow.

Stephen’s winning design was chosen by a panel of judges, made up of SCLD staff and people from the design and arts world, such as members of Project Ability, a learning disability arts project.

Stephen and the team at SCLD worked with Heedi Design to develop his original drawing into ‘Uno the Unicorn’, who will be our Learning Disability Week mascot for 2019 and beyond.

Uno has a story to tell us…

Keep a look out for Uno… you never know where you might spot him next! You can help us to introduce Uno by downloading images of him and sharing them on social media using the hashtag #MeetUno
