People with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) are, like everyone else, unique individuals.

But, sometimes it’s helpful to talk about groups of people who have common concerns and distinctive needs, face barriers to be included and need help to fight for their equal rights.

We bring people with PMLD and their families, carers and advocates together with statutory and voluntary agencies. We share good practice, we campaign and we provide information and support.

We want to make sure people with PMLD are fully included in society.
