Welsh Government launch their Learning Disability Action Plan

The Welsh Government have launched their Learning Disability Strategic Action Plan, which sets out the things they want to focus on and achieve to help improve the lives of people with learning disabilities from 2022 to 2026. The Welsh Government spoke to people with learning disabilities to make sure that people were happy with the plan they had made.


Alex, who is a representative for mirus Cardiff and is supported by mirus, was part of a panel of people who gave feedback about the plan before it was published. Alex said:

“They talked about their plans to make things better for people with learning disabilities. I felt important, honoured and privileged because I was telling the Welsh Government what I thought.”


The Welsh Government agreed on 9 important areas that they want learning disability policy to focus on.

Those areas are:

  • General issues that lots of government departments need to be involved in
  • Recovering from COVID
  • Health
  • Social Services and social care
  • Independent living and advocacy
  • Education and children and young people’s services
  • Jobs and skills
  • Housing
  • Transport


A group of experts called the Learning Disability Ministerial Advisory Group (LDMAG) will check that the Welsh Government are achieving the actions in the plan, and there will be a big review of the plan in 2024.
