The Learning Disability Alliance Scotland – also known as LDAS – supports people living with learning disabilities across Scotland to engage in Scotland’s political life and to campaign for improvements in Scottish society for the benefit of the learning disabled community.
LDAS works to help people with learning disabilities and their families raise their concerns and worries with local and national politicians.
LDAS is a unique organisation is Scotland supporting people with learning disabilities, their families and carers and the organisations who work with to raise their own issues with politicians and decision makers. LDAS believes the learning disabled community in Scotland is stronger when its members work together. In addition, they believe it can play an important role in Scotland’s developing society and, with the support of LDAS, can speak out, raise awareness, and engage in the political process and make its own voice heard.
The main purpose of LDAS is to inform and support people living with learning disabilities about the latest political developments and the issues most important to them and to improving their own lives using easily accessible information and supporting them to learn and process the information. Through the Stronger Together groups, regular workshops and Easy Read materials, LDAS assists with informing, engaging, campaigning and speaking out about what it is like to live with a learning disability in Scotland today and what those living with learning disabilities need to make their lives better.
