Do you want to find out the latest learning disability related news and information? Do you have a question about supporting people with learning disabilities? Do you want to connect with other like-minded people with an interest in the learning disabilities field?

Our forums are a great way of connecting people to all the latest news, information and ideas around supporting people with learning disabilities. The topics discussed are totally led by the interests of the members.

They bring together over 6,000 people with an interest in people with learning disabilities. The members are a mixture of people working in the field, parents or carers and people with learning disabilities. They are places where you can ask questions, share information, find answers and share ideas with others with similar experiences and interests.

  • The Choice Forum is the biggest, liveliest online discussion forum on issues in the lives of people with learning disabilities in the UK and brings together people working with people with learning disabilities, national and local policy makers, service providers and purchasers, parents, carers and people with learning disabilities.

  • The UK Health and Learning Disability Network gives members access to a national community of people interested in health and people with learning disabilities, including nurses, doctors, therapists, commissioners and professors via a weekly newsletter.

  • The PMLD Network discusses the support of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities. 

  • The Hidden Loves Forum discusses the support of people with learning disabilities in same sex relationships.
