Parents’ Group

The Parents Group is for parents with learning disabilities, some parents have their children living with them and some do not.

We meet once a month in Edinburgh on a Thursday morning from 10:30 – 12:30.

Members of The Parents’ Group raise awareness of the barriers parents with learning disabilities face in their everyday lives. Our lived experience means we are the experts.

The Parents’ group gives parents with learning disabilities a place to come if they’ve got any worries or concerns. You can get advice and support from others who have similar experiences.

We want:

  • To continue to raise awareness of barriers we face through increased training and policy change.
  • For all letters and information concerning our children to be in easy read language.

As part of our work:

  • We provide training
  • We consult on and influence policy and law
  • Some Individual Advocacy is also provided to parents
