“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.”
