Learning Disability Matters for Families – Covid 19 update

Dear colleague

As you know the learning disability matters for families website was launched earlier this year to support families and carers of children and young people with a learning disability around advice and guidance, support, useful tips and contacts.

We have updated the website with some information around Covid-19 specifically relating to resilience and health and wellbeing of families. A range of resources are available from short guides, films and useful websites / contacts. These include:

  • Sleep tips
  • 5 ways to wellbeing
  • Mindfulness
  • Strategies to support parents during isolation
  • Managing stress
  • Useful contacts
  • Other useful websites
  • What other information do you need?

The website link can be found here:

Can you please share widely through your networks?
