South East London Learning Disability Awareness week 2022

Learning Disability Awareness week is about telling people what life is like with a
learning disability.

The event is commissioned by the NHS South East London CCG and has been
coordinated and will be delivered by partner organisations Advocacy in Greenwich,
Advocacy for All and Lewisham Speaking up. This year is the first time we are
hosting the event. The sessions will take place in June.

Our week of activities has been planned by people with learning disabilities and
autism. They decided to have a mix of fun and serious sessions. They also wanted
to join in with the Mencap Awareness week theme of reconnecting with friends and

Our sessions are accessible for all: people with learning disabilities, parent/carers,
friends, and professionals.

We have a mixture of zoom, in person and sessions which you will be able to choose
if you want to join via zoom or in person.

See here the full programme with the details of the sessions.
The Awareness week is important because it gives people with learning disabilities a
chance to:
• have their voices heard
• speak up and learn about subjects that are important to them
• educate others and raise awareness
• help to end discrimination

We hope you enjoy taking part!
