Learning Disability Wales was created in 1983. We are a national charity, recognised as the combined voice of learning disability in Wales, bringing together people with a learning disability themselves, family carers and third sector providers.

We work in partnership with a wide range of public authorities, agencies and other non-governmental organisations.

We want all people with a learning disability to live as independently as possible in a place that they choose, to have control over their lives and be contributing citizens.

Our mission is to: ‘Create a Wales that values and includes every child, young person and adult with a learning disability’.
