The Learning Disabilities fund supports 10 charities and social enterprises from the Learning Disabilities Section to improve their resilience and sustainability so they can deliver on key aspects of the Keys to Life.
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.
