Learning Disability Week 2020 takes place online from 15 to 21 June. The theme of the week is the importance of friendships during lockdown.
People with a learning disability already experience high levels of loneliness and social isolation and that this will only have been made worse by the lockdown as they have been unable to see their friends and families. Find out how friendships can help tackle isolation, as well as how to stay in touch with friends when you can't see them, on the Mencap website: https://www.mencap.org.uk/get-involved/learning-disability-week-2020
