Who we are
The Working Together with Parents Network is a UK-wide network of professionals working to support parents with learning disabilities. It is made up of a country-wide network in Scotland and regional networks in England and in Wales.
The Working Together with Parents Network is a professional network and is a free resource for anyone working with parents with learning disabilities across the UK.
Workers from a wide variety of backgrounds including health, social care as well as the legal and education sector can benefit from involvement in our growing network.
Members will be able to:
- Contribute to the development of working across disciplines,
- Share and receive good practice examples and updates on resources, policy and research of relevance,
- Attend network meetings and local events,
- Receive bi-monthly online newsletters about policy and practice developments,
- Join the member’s only board which is a practice and resource sharing tool.
The Working Together with Parents Network is funded by Esmee Fairbairn and is a partnership project between The University of Bristol, Learning Disability Wales and SCLD.
