Learning Disability Week 2019

This week is Learning Disability Week, with a focus on sport and how to make it easy for someone with a learning disability to be able to take part in sport.

In a Mencap survey 49% of people with a learning disability said they would like to spend more time outside of their house and 18% of people said they felt alone and cut off from other people. Sport and physical activity can reduce loneliness and isolation, and when people with and without a learning disability exercise together, it can help change attitudes and challenge negative views.

We love that our tenants are encouraged and supported to take part in a wide range of sporting activities!
