Learning Disability Week 18-24 June

Posted on Updated on

This year, Learning Disability Week (18 – 24 June) will be all about health – with a big focus on the Treat me well campaign.

This year the aim of Learning Disability Week is to spread the word about the problems people with a learning disability can face in getting good healthcare in hospital, and how to change this.

Mencap want to involve NHS staff in the Treat me well campaign – giving them the chance to hear from people with a learning disability and to think about the simple changes they can make which would make a big difference to people with a learning disability.

This is to give people with a learning disability and NHS staff the chance to celebrate and share good practice, and to work together to improve care that isn’t good enough.
