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.

Medical Student Training next Friday (30th October) – make a difference.
‘Session with parents and carers sharing their experiences of GP practices and hospital visits’
Conwy Connect are regularly involved in learning disability training for medical students. Part of this is a ‘meet the parents’ (or carers) session where volunteers share their experiences (good and bad) of medical professionals.
We feel such input is invaluable to the training of future medical professionals and is our chance to encourage better practice. If you can give your time it would be greatly appreciated.
The next session will be on 30 October at Colwyn Bay Cricket Club, 77 Penrhyn Ave, Rhos on Sea between 10.30 and 12.
