At Carers Support, our Learning Disabilities Team can offer support to anyone caring for someone with a Learning Disability. We offer a flexible programme of support and also provide information about a host of local and national organisations.
Learning Disability Partnership Board (LDPB) – is made up of people with learning disabilities, carers and people from health and community services. The LDPB meet together to talk about important issues for people with learning disabilities and their family and friend carers, such as advocacy services, direct payments, work opportunities and social care services in West Sussex. The aim is to make sure people with learning disabilities get their rights and that people who provide services make their services available to people with a learning disability and make them easy to use.
BILD uses its skills, knowledge and experience to turn policy into practice, solve problems and improve support for people with disabilities.
Mencap want to improve the lives of people with a learning disability and their families now, and fight alongside them for a better future. They team up with our network of over 400 local groups to reach people across England, Northern Ireland and Wales.
