Our work influences government and local authority policies and services so that they better meet the needs of people with learning disabilities, their families and carers.
We also raise awareness of learning disability issues amongst the wider public, in order to breakdown stigma and discrimination.
We aim to break down the economic and social barriers and prejudices that people with learning disabilities face throughout their lives, as well as providing information, resources and services that can help them lead fuller, more independent lives.
Central to our work is our involvement of people with learning disabilities, their families and carers themselves. Their insight, advice and experiences is crucial to the research we undertake to inform our policy, public information and service improvement work.
We do not operate a helpline and unfortunately can't offer advice. If you need to contact us with a general enquiry, or would like to order FPLD publications, please contact our London office.
