We want to get adults with learning disabilities digitally included so they are not left behind by society.

by Leep1 CIC in Leeds, England, United Kingdom

Our vision is to support people with LD to become digitally included.

We are very fortunate to have such a passionate team supporting our members with learning disabilities (LD). 

Accessibility is a big issue for people with learning disabilities (LD) using the internet. Most websites are inaccessible and hard to use. Making it more accessible then costs large amounts of money to buy the specialist programmes, even purchasing new devices or having the internet access is a barrier for adults with LD due to lack of funds. Most are on benefits and struggle to make ends meet already without having these extra costs. Lots of adults with LD also have a lack of literacy skills and confidence.



With the funding you pledge this will allow us to;

1. Get all our members digitally included - learn to use social media, apply for jobs online, plan their journey, digital marketing, boost the learners confidence and independence.

2. Learn how to sell a clothing range online with the strapline #AbilitiesNotDisabilities - doing all the marketing, designing and online sales.

3. Disability Awareness - through selling the clothing it will bring awareness of disabilities and support

4. Employment - At the end of the course we will contact other organisations to have our learners do an online marketing campaign for them with the hope of getting our learners a job within their organisation.
