A life more ordinary: securing friendships, relationships and connection for people with a learning disability

29 Jun 2021


60 minutes

Between 2017-2020, the Our Social Networks project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, collected stories from people with a learning disability about their friendships and relationships. Over 40 oral history interviews were recorded.


Unsurprisingly the stories shared through this project confirm the role of friendships and relationships in securing a good life. We know from existing research that having connections and friendships improves our happiness and our health. Yet friendships and relationships continue to be elusive for many people with a learning disability.

This session will provide an opportunity to reflect on the themes and recommendations needed to prioritise friendships and relationships within social care.
