Our team

FPLD has a breadth and depth of experience and knowledge helping to ensure people with learning disabilities have the same opportunities as other people through carrying out research, policy, development and consultancy work.

The team is supported by a broad range of consultants: experts by experience, families, and wider consultants who are project based. FPLD is part of London South Bank University and has access to their broader team including research and policy, communications and fundraising.

Advisory board and groups

Our advisory board and groups, which include experts by experience with learning disabilities, are crucial to the development of all our work. Along with our consultants, they offer a wealth of expertise in developing the work of the Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities.
