Everyone is invited to take part in Mencap’s first national survey of people with a learning disability in fifteen years!

This online survey is the chance for people with a learning disability to share their experiences. It was fully co-produced by people with a learning disability and it asks questions on topics they say are important to them, including health, relationships, employment and inclusion.

The survey findings will be shared later in the year, and the data will be made available for other organisations to use too. Mencap hopes that these will be useful across the sector, to fill in knowledge gaps and help them provide even better support to people with a learning disability.

To take part go to:

www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/big-learning-disability-survey

The survey will stay open until the end of April.

For more information, Easy Read FAQs, supporter guidelines or the Welsh language version of the survey, visit www.mencap.org.uk/big-learning-disability-survey.
