The forum for learning difficulties brings together voluntary and community sector organisations who are working to improve the quality of life for people with learning difficulties.
The forum recognises that organisations and individuals face barriers to work, including: isolation, blocks to communication, access to key information, complexities in representing this diverse sector effectively. The forum aims to offer a way of addressing these difficulties.
In order to promote its aim, all members joining the forum are expected to listen to each other, share their opinions and experiences, and to recognise when there are opportunities to work more closely together.
Next meeting: Wednesday 21 June, 10am-12 noon
