The Big Learning Disability Survey

‘The Big Learning Disability Survey’

There are currently 1.4 million people living in the UK with a learning disability. Mencap is a UK Charity supporting people with learning disabilities to do the things they love. They can help with supported living, social care, housing, employment and have their own helpline on 0808 808 1111 (Open Monday-Friday 9am-3pm).

Mencap are now inviting people to take part in the first national survey of people with learning disabilities in fifteen years!

Mencap’s ‘Big Learning Disability Survey’ was co-produced by people with a learning disability and it presents the chance for people to share their lived experiences. The survey includes topics such as relationships, health, employment and inclusion.

The aim of the survey is to help Mencap and other services provide even better support to those living with a learning disability. Mencap will share the findings of the survey this summer, as well as the data in order for other organisations to use it as well.
