Why train with Bild

Bild (British Institute of Learning Disabilities) is a national charity that has protected and supported the rights of people with learning disabilities for more than 50 years. We want a more fair and equal society where everyone has the same rights and opportunities.

By working in partnership with people with learning disabilities and drawing from research evidence, we identify best practice and what works. People want the right kind of support so they can make choices and decisions about the things that affect their lives – we can help you provide this support.
