Learning Disability Week 2021

This year’s Learning Disability Week will take place from 14 – 20 June. The theme will be art and creativity! You can download a pack to help you here.

So, if you fancy getting out the paints, pencils, tissue paper or even spaghetti then our challenge to you is to have a go at painting or making a picture of yourself 😊

You can see some of our Adult Day Service Users work below:

We would then love to see your artwork and put this up in a display at Link Up and on our Facebook page. You can either bring these in with you when you next week or email a picture of your artwork to cathy.black@wbmencap.org.

Why not try some Makaton?

What better way to celebrate #LDArtWeek than with a visit from Nikki and Lucinda?

They’re here to share the Makaton sign for ‘to create.’ It’s the same sign for ‘to model’ as well!

Why not try some Makaton too?
