Learning Disability Week 2020

 

It’s Scottish Learning Disability Week 2020 (Monday 18th – Sunday 24th May) and this year the theme is ‘My Environment – My place, my planet’, which is all about how people with learning disabilities should be included in helping their local environment, and in wider debates around key issues such as climate change.

This is significant because research increasingly shows that climate change is predicted to have a disproportionate impact on disabled people.

During the global lockdown, many people’s ‘environments’ have shrunk in size, and for some, particularly those who are shielding, environments have become limited to their own homes.

The Scottish Commission for Learning Disability (SCLD) want to ensure that everyone can join in and celebrate Scottish Learning Disability Week no matter their current situation..

You can join the ‘Let’s Notice Nature’ Facebook group and access the resources from the ‘Let’s Notice Nature’ via:
