Today marks the start of Learning Disability Week and this year Mencap are celebrating families.
We all know the barriers that people with a learning disability and their families can face, but this year Mencap want to turn that around by sharing positive stories and shouting about some of the fantastic people we know and love. The families Mencap work with are amazing, brave and selfless superheroes – in Learning Disability Week 2013 Mencap want to make sure everyone knows it!
Share your stories with Mencap
Tell Mencap who your superhero is by sharing your story. Mencap are gathering stories together so that everyone can see how many superheroes there are – this will be done by using the hashtag #LDWeek13.
Support Learning Disability Week
Mencap and local groups will be working hard to bring people together to celebrate everyday superheroes and strengthen networks in local communities. Find out more about what each Mencap hub is doing during Learning Disability Week by visiting Mencap’s Facebook event page or email firstname.lastname@example.org and come along and say hello!
