Welcome to Conwy Connect for Learning Disabilities
Conwy Connect for Learning Disabilities was set up in 1997 to help promote the rights of people with a learning disability living within the county of Conwy in North Wales. Our aims include ensuring people have equality of choice and opportunity in the community they live in. We provide an essential link between all stakeholders whilst keeping members up-to-date of relevant changes in learning disability services.

Moving On Solution
Moving On Solutions Group was set up to look at supporting the development of new opportunities for social and leisure activities in the community, for Adults with Learning Disability. The group, mainly volunteers, has achieved a lot in the time it has been running. This Bulletin is to bring you up to date with current and future activities.
