Learning Disability Wales
Learning Disibility Wales and Digital Communities Wales have joined together to create a new course that makes it easier for people with learning disabilities to get, and have fun, online.
Learning Disability Wales (LDW) is a national charity supporting people with learning disabilities to live, learn and work. Rather than providing frontline or direct services to those with learning disabilities, they support other organisations that do, whether that’s promoting good practice, influencing government policies, or providing advice, information and training courses.
The programme isn’t aimed directly at people with learning disabilities, but the people that support them - family members, carers, key workers, etc - so they can help the people they support to get online.
We and DCW had to act rapidly to get this course up and running, using our combined expertise, and the result has been really unique. It seems to have benefitted people hugely during the pandemic and we’ve had great feedback from it.
