What We Do

Why we exist

SCLD is a Human Rights Defender. Our vision is of a Scotland where people with learning disabilities live full, safe, loving and equal lives.

How we do things

We influence the development of policy, practice and legislation and are respectful, inclusive, collaborative and pioneering.

The difference we make

1. People with learning disabilities champion and defend their own and other people’s human rights, and lead the work to improve policy, practice and legislation.

2. People with learning disabilities are confident about what they can achieve and use their voices to lead, participate and influence change.

3. Practitioners and service providers learn from shared experiences resulting in improved practice and services, informed by human rights standards, data and evidence.

SCLD's strategy.
