Scotland’s national Learning Disability Week will be held from 15th-21st May 2017
This year’s theme is: Looking back, thinking forward.
Scottish Commission For learning Disability : 2017 is the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology in Scotland. We want to take this opportunity to reflect on how the lives of people with learning disabilities in Scotland have changed since the launch of Scotland’s first learning disability strategy in 2001. We want to learn lessons from the past, and consider how we can work towards building a better future.
