Learning Disability England launched
The Housing and Support Alliance (H&SA) and the self-advocacy group People First England (PFE) have joined forces to form Learning Disability England (LDE). Building on the work of Learning Disability Alliance England, this exciting new membership organisation brings together people with learning disabilities, their families, friends and the organisations and people who work with them.
LDE will campaign on the things that matter to its members, whilst ensuring that the voice of people with learning disabilities is at the forefront of any decisions about what LDE should be doing.
Gary Bourlet, co-founder of Learning Disability England said:
“LDE is important because we want self-advocates to work closely with families, carers and organisations that work with people with learning disabilities to come together and work together. For far too long we have been working separately and our voices have not been strong enough on our own to make change. To make change we need to work with others.”
