Here to help with questions relating to learning disability and its impact on family carers
The best, in not the only extensive coverage of Scotland’s newly established Learning Disability Awards was in the Daily Record.
The full report is available via this link – but perhaps we may just quote its opening words
“MUCH is written about the struggles and challenges faced by those living with learning disabilities.
But a new awards competition is shining a spotlight on their amazing achievements instead.
Scotland’s first national Learning Disability Awards – run by the Scottish Commission for Learning Disability (SCLD) – took place on Friday night.
Prizes were handed out in seven categories at the ceremony at the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow.
It was a glittering night that celebrated the rarely heard stories and achievements of those with learning disabilities and the people who support them.”
(For info: the equivalent Learning Disabilities Awards ceremony will take place on 14th July 2017 at the ICC Birmingham)
