Learning Disability Week 2020 will take place online from 15th to 21st June.
The theme of the week is the importance of friendships during lockdown.
Due to coronavirus, we are all currently living in lockdown. This means that many people with a learning disability are feeling lonely, as they are unable to see their friends and families.
We want 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.
We know many people will be unable to see their friends in person at the moment. So Mencap created a pack to help you have a fun video call with your friends! The pack includes how to make a friendship flag which you could make before your video call that shows all the things you like or miss about your friend. You can then show your friends on your video call, hang it up at home or share it on social media.
