People with learning disabilities and their families and carers, can access a number of support resources from local and national charities operating in Scotland. ENABLE Scotland is a national Scottish charity that offers support to people with learning disabilities, their families and carers. They operate an advice line as well as online resources. Promoting a More Inclusive Society (PAMIS) is a national Scottish Charity that offers support and advice to people with Profound or Multiple Learning/Intellectual Disabilities and their families. Down’s Syndrome Scotland is the national organisation for people with Down’s Syndrome and their families and carers. Local groups may also be operating in your area.
A refresh of the NHS Education for Scotland Learning Disability website is currently underway and will be continuously updated with further training, support and signposting for both professionals and individuals. This will also include resources, training and guidance to assist with the annual health check process for people with learning disabilities.
