What we do

We want all people with a learning disability to live as independently as possible in a place that they choose, and to have control over their lives.

We believe that people with a learning disability can achieve this if they, their families and the people who support them have access to the best information, advice, training and support.

We play a unique role in making this happen - through our own services, working in partnership with other organisations, and influencing policy.

How we do this

Working in partnership

We work in partnership with:

  • people with a learning disability
  • our members
  • Welsh Government
  • service providers
  • disabled people's organisations
  • advocacy groups
  • statutory agencies
  • parent and carer organisations.

We promote real inclusion, personalisation and person-centred planning, and actively support the People First slogan: 'Nothing about us without us!'

We believe in the fundamental values of the  United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD), and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
