Learning Disability Awareness week 2022

Monday 20th June – Friday 24th June

Join us for a week of activities in Learning Disability Awareness Week 2022!

Learning Disability Week is about telling people what life is like with a learning disability.

This year, we want to show how people with a learning disability are reconnecting with friends and their communities.

We also want to talk about the issues many people still face after the end of COVID restrictions, like still having to isolate or dealing with poor mental health and anxiety.

A week of activities has been planned by people with learning disabilities and autism. We are having a mix of fun and serious sessions.

The sessions are accessible for all: people with learning disabilities, parent/carers, friends, and professionals.

Learning Disability Awareness week is important because it gives people with learning disabilities a chance to:

  • have their voices heard
  • speak up and learn about subjects that are important to them
  • educate others and raise awareness
  • help to end discrimination

 

We have a mixture of zoom and in person sessions. Some sessions you will be able to choose if you want to join on zoom or in person.

This event is commissioned by the NHS South East London CCG and has been arranged by partner organisations Advocacy in Greenwich, Advocacy for All and Lewisham Speaking up. They will deliver various activities through the week.
