Description

ENABLE Scotland is a dynamic charity run by its members. We campaign for a better life for children and adults with learning disabilities. We support people who have learning disabilities and their families to live, work and take part in their communities.

We provide a growing range of person-centred services designed to be flexible and adapt to the needs of the people using these services.

We make sure that children and adults with learning disabilities and their carers are at the heart of everything that we do.

Enable Scotland believes that children and adults with learning disabilities have the same right as anyone else to lead full and active lives in their local communities.

In Edinburgh we do this by supporting people to live in their own tenancies, supporting people to find and retain jobs, and supporting people to access training and further education.
