Our campaigns in Northern Ireland


From working with politicians in changing legislation, to partnering with local organisations to highlight and share best practice, we campaign with and for people with a learning disability, to ensure their rights become a reality.

Together we want to ensure everyone with a learning disability is listened to, valued equally, and included in all aspects of society. 

The All Party Group on Learning Disability

The All Party Group on Learning Disability (APGLD) is cross-political and aims to promote issues facing people with a learning disability and influence policy, legislation and service development within Northern Ireland.

Open Consultations

A symbol for equality of communication access

The wheelchair symbol is one of the top 10 most recognised symbols in the world, yet there is no universal symbol for communication access in the UK.

A consortium of national organisations in the UK have developed options for a symbol for communication access, and would like to hear individuals with a learning disability and their family/carers opinion. 

Please follow this link for more information and if you would like to contribute to the consultation: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/communication_access034
