Our mission is to create a Wales that values and includes every child, young person and adult with a learning disability. We do this through working with people with a learning disability and their families, Welsh Government, local authorities, disabled people’s organisations and the voluntary sector so we can create a better Wales for all people with a learning disability.

Policy work is a central part of fulfilling this vision. We are working actively to:

  • Create a society that includes, values and respects people with a learning disability.
  • Create an inclusive education system for children and adults with and without a learning disability.
  • Close the learning disability employment gap.
  • Create a political system in which laws, policy and practice is co-produced with people with a learning disability and in which disabled people have real control in making decisions about issues that affect them.
  • Ensure that people with a learning disability have control of their own lives.

Keep up-to-date with all our policy work at our news section and our Twitter and Facebook social pages.
