The Learning Disabilities fund supports charities and social enterprises from the Learning Disabilities Sector to improve their resilience and sustainability so they can deliver on key aspects of the Keys to Life.
Inspiring ScotlandÂ and theÂ Scottish Commission for People with Learning DisabilitiesÂ (SCLD) teamed up to create a leadership course for people with learning disabilities.
The course is designed to help participants develop the skills and tools to make choices that will help them live the healthiest, happiest and most fulfilled life possible.
The course is currently open to applications.
The fourth Our Future Leaders Course runs from 31 May 2022 to 11 October 2022.
Applications are due by 5pm on 29th April 2022.
The Learning Disabilities fund works towards the aims of the Keys to Life strategy. The Keys to Life strategy recognises that people who have a learning disability have the same aspirations and expectations as everyone else and is guided by a vision shaped by the Scottish Government’s ambition for all citizens.
Everyone – including people with learning disabilities – should be able to contribute to a fairer Scotland where we tackle inequalities and people are supported to flourish and succeed.
People with learning disabilities should be treated with dignity, respect and understanding. They should be able to play a full part in their communities and live independent lives free from bullying, fear, and harassment.
The Keys to Life strategy has 5 clear priorities, and is aligned with the Fairer Scotland for Disabled People strategy: Living, Learning, Working, Wellbeing and Engagement.
