Sexuality & Relationships
One of the four Preparing for Adulthood pathways focusses on Relationships - this includes family, friends and community, as well as sexual relationships. On this page we have provided a number of useful links to support young adults who are thinking about their sexuality, sexual identity, relationships and rights.
Vision Statement, Mencap
A vision for the future where sexual identity, and personal and sexual relationships of people with a learning disability, are recognised, accepted and respected.
Advice & Support, Mencap
If you have a learning disability, or you know someone who does, Mencap can help you find the right advice and support about sexuality and relationships.
My Rights Charter, NDTi & My Life My Choice
The charter draws on the findings from two research projects. The first carried out by the Tizard Centre and the second by NDTi and My Life My Choice. Both show how important having a relationship is and the barriers that people with learning disabilities continue to face.
