Legal toolkits: know your rights

Our advice guides are here to provide advocates of people with a learning disability information on a range of topics, from housing and education to health and social care.

If you are a family member, support worker or advocate to someone with a learning disability, these guides also aim to give you peace of mind by offering clear and practical advice.
