Change that leads to better lives

Useful Links: 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.

Sexuality Relationships

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.

Transgender: An Easy Read Guide, Choice Support

This guide was produced following discussions on this issue affecting people with learning disabilities and the lack of accessible information on this topic.

LGBTQ+: An Easy Read Guide, CHANGE
