Learning Disability Week 2020 – 15th to 21st June

DAILY UPDATE (16th June 2020) 

Learning Disability Week 2020 takes place online from 15th to 21st June and the theme of the week is the importance of friendships during lockdown.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have all been living in lockdown. This means that many people with a learning disability are feeling isolated, as they have been unable to see their friends and families.

People with a learning disability can already experience high levels of loneliness and social isolation and this will likely have been made worse by the lockdown.

Learning Disability Week 2020 aims to show the importance of friendships to help with tackling isolation, as well as exploring the different ways of maintaining friendships during this unusual time.

Stay safe and connected!
