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. Its aims include ensuring people have equality of choice and opportunity in the community they live in.

Making a difference by

  • Providing an essential link between all stakeholders whilst keeping members up to date of relevant changes in learning disability services.

  • Informing members of any relevant changes in services

  • Providing information that increases choice

  • Breaking down barriers, encouraging and enabling people with a learning disability to have the right to a normal pattern of life

We also help to ‘CONNECT’ people who are interested in the continued care and support of people with a learning disability.

What we do

  • Offer independent information and advice on learning disability services

  • Provide opportunities for members to exchange information, increase choice through our open meetings, newsletters and other publications.

  • Increase and extend opportunities using person centred approaches for active, meaningful involvement through consultations

  • Provide person centred facilitation, to enable participation and engagement for people with learning disabilities and their families in Conwy
