It’s Learning Disability Week 2020!
Learning Disability Week 2020 will take place online from 15 to 21 June. The theme of the week is the importance of friendships during lockdown.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic we have all been living in lockdown. This means that many people with a learning disability are feeling isolated, as they have been unable to see their friends and families. We know that people with a learning disability already experience high levels of loneliness and social isolation and that this will only have been made worse by the lockdown.
Learning Disabilities Charity Mencap wants to show the importance of friendships to help with tackling isolation, as well as exploring the different ways of maintaining friendships during this unusual time.
How to Get Involved
On Friday, 19 June, from 2pm to 2.30pm, join Merton Mencap who will be singing two great songs with everyone! The songs they have chosen – clear winners when it comes to the ‘Happy’ and ‘Feel-Good’ factor, are:
Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up; and Pharrell Williams’ Happy. Don’t worry if you don’t know the words, they will be on the screen – or just hum and clap along. #LDWeek2020.
