BILD is the British Institute of Learning Disabilities. Founded in 1971, we celebrated our 40th birthday last year.
We want people with learning disabilities to be valued equally, participate fully in their communities and be treated with dignity and respect.
Our services help develop the organisations who provide services, and the people who give support.
That way we play a part in making sure people are supported with dignity and respect and can make choices and decisions about their lives.
We have around a thousand members who we make sure get the latest news in learning disabilities - why don't you join us?
And as part of the Learning Disability Coalition - now part of the Voluntary Organisations Disability Group - we campaign for proper funding for support for people with learning disabilties and their family carers.
If you can, please support us in our work.
