The story of our year

In January 2021, we changed our name to Learning Disability Network London Limited (LDN London). The name change came about after extensive consultation with people with learning disabilities, their families, our staff and supporters and the overwhelming response was that we wanted a name which better reflects the organisation we are today. As LDN London, we are committed to furthering our reach and to be the organisation of choice for learning disabled Londoners and their families.

““Cecilia is clearly highly skilled at person centred care. In an alien situation, she excelled, organising support for an individual with learning disabilities so that they understood and could make choices about their end of life experience.” (Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards 2019, Judges' Special Recognition Award)”
