Learning Disabilities

There are 1.5 million people with a learning disability in the UK

Connected Care technology such as telecare, assistive technology and telehealth can enable people with a learning disability to live with greater independence, choice and control, both at home and when out in the community.


Technology can make a difference to people with all kinds of learning disabilities, whether their difficulties are relatively mild or more profound and if they are living in formal care settings or more independently in the community.

From managing risks such as fires or falling, to aiding communication and helping to deliver greater privacy or dignity, technology can enable people to have more control over the way they live their lives.

As more is understood about learning disabilities it is clear that enabling technology has the potential to make a significant and positive difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities, and the ability of our health, housing and social care systems to manage their needs effectively.


Learning Disabilities Sector Deal

Tunstall supported national learning disabilities charity Hft with the creation of an in-depth report setting out the case for a deal for the learning disability sector, focusing on realising the potential of technology to boost investment and transform the way care is delivered.

The report was launched on 15 July 2019 at the House of Lords.
