More information

Our Future Leaders will cover the skills, attributes, and self-understanding that people need in their present life and in the future.

Over the longer term this will develop skills within the community of people with learning disabilities that will ensure they are, together, empowered to participate as equal and valued citizens with the full range of rights that other citizens enjoy.

The course will be delivered on Zoom by external trainers selected by Inspiring Scotland and SCLD.
