A visit to Learning Disability Today is a must for everyone involved in the lives of people with learning disabilities – our seminar programme and exhibition are a great place to find out about many of the organisations working in the sector today.

Whether you work with a person with a learning disability, have a learning disability, are studying, or are a commissioner, manager or chief executive, we design Learning Disability Today to give everyone a forum to listen, think, learn, and share
