Around 1.4 million people in the UK have a learning disability
They are one of the most excluded groups in our society
They have a life expectancy of around 20 years lower than a non-disabled person
At least half the learning disabled population experience loneliness and isolation
They also face prejudice, poverty, unemployment and poor mental health.
How We Help
Heart n Soul’s Taking Part programme, including Allsorts and Do Your Own Thing, leads to people having more confidence and living more independent lives. Many go on to perform their music and show artwork in mainstream venues, contributing to society and sharing their talents with the world.
