Getting started

A group of young adults with differing disabilities.

Learning Disability

Someone with a learning disability is not able to learn and do things at the same rate as others. This is lifelong. It differs from person to person but affects things like socialising or managing money, doing jobs around the house and work in general. For more information visit the Mencap website  where ‘learning disability’ is explained in more detail.
