Scottish Learning Disability Week 2021

Scottish Learning Disability Week, hosted by the Scottish Commission for People with Learning Disabilities (SCLD), takes place from Monday 10 - Sunday 16 May. This year, the theme is ‘Relationships’.

Throughout the week, SCLD will be highlighting all aspects of relationships by holding virtual discussion groups and workshops which explore a variety of topics including friendship, romance and sex.

To highlight the importance of this week and its key themes, Sandyford is asking colleagues in Glasgow and Clyde to assist in supporting this population group who are currently under-represented in sexual health data.

Scottish law and government policy is framed in ways to ensure adults with learning difficulties are supported to understand how to safely conduct fulfilling relationships, including sexual relationships.

As a part of the service review, Sandyford identified that adults with learning difficulties are a group who can experience barriers when enacting their rights to have positive relationships and good sexual health. 

Sandyford are delighted to start addressing this by inviting colleagues who work with those who have learning disabilities to take part in a needs assessment. This will help Sandyford to rebuild those partnership connections and establish an understanding of the good practice already in existence, whilst developing a programme of support for those who need it.
