What we do:

  • Raise awareness of the palliative care needs of people with learning disabilities.
  • Share and promote ‘best practice’.
  • Enhance collaboration between all services providers, carers and people with a learning disability.

We do this by:

  • Offering opportunities for networking, collaboration, exchange of ideas and development of best practice. In some areas, local groups hold regular meetings for members.
  • Recognising and sharing best practice through the annual Linda McEnhill Award.
  • Hosting learning events and supporting training opportunities.

Social Media:

We have a Facebook page where you are welcome to post links and share relevant information.




We hope that you will join the PCPLD Network, membership is free and, if you are happy to receive occasional emails, you will be the first to hear of our news and events. Some of the presentations from our recent conferences can be viewed on our Slideshare page.
