Our offices are still closed.  We are reviewing and planning how to reopen them again in line with Government guidelines. Please follow us on social media or check this page to keep up to date. 


Drop-in activities and group sessions 

We are continuing to run our programme of weekly online sessions alongside a limited number of face-to-face activities.  Contact us for details. 

Statutory advocacy services 

Our advocates are working remotely and our statutory advocacy service is still available.   

Support for people with learning disabilities 

We have been in touch with everyone who previously attended our drop-in sessions, group activities and self-advocacy groups to provide support around managing the difficult circumstances and practical help to connect with us and other online.   


If you know someone with a learning disability who you think may need our help, please support them to get in touch with us.
