It’s Learning Disability Week!

LD Week takes place from 19th – 25th August and aims to raise awareness of learning disability in the UK. This year’s theme is “Who is your Superhero?” – recognising the hard work that people do to support people with learning disabilities.

At Forever Manchester our ethos focuses on the skills and abilities of local people to encourage empowerment in our communities which is why we’re committed to supporting and celebrating the skills and talents of people with learning disabilities.

This year we’ve already funded a number of inspirational groups and people who are real life superheroes committing their lives to improving the wellbeing of people with learning disabilities. To name but a few:

  •          Bury Gateway
  •          Dance Syndrome
  •          Hope for Disability
  •          Bolton Wanderers Disability Football Club
  •          Fir Tree Fishery
  •          Dyslexic By Nature
  •          North City Youth Zone
  •          Proud and Loud Arts
  •          Carers of people with learning disabilities
  •          The Heroes Project – find out about the amazing stuff that the Heroes do in the video  below.
