We aim to raise awareness of the palliative care needs of people with learning disabilities, to share and promote ‘best practice’ and to enhance collaboration between all services providers, carers and people with a learning disability.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We have added useful information and resources in relation to supporting people with learning disabilities around coronavirus. Coping with death, dying and bereavement at a time of social isolation, and making decisions around care and treatment, is especially difficult. We would like to hear your stories, learn from them, and if possible, share them. Please contact Irene Tuffrey-Wijne (PCPLD Network Chair) with your stories: email I.Tuffrey-Wijne@sgul.kingston.ac.uk
