Learning Disability Week 2019


It’s Learning Disability Week 2019 (17 – 23 June 2019). #LDWeek2019 promotes awareness of sport and inclusion:

“Sport and physical activity can reduce loneliness and isolation. Benefits for people with and without a learning disability include improved health and wellbeing, empowerment and greater social inclusion. Iconic Steps created this video featuring the Mencap running group to show the benefits of sport and how it promotes inclusion.”MENCAP
