Learning Disabilities with Dorothy Watson and Marcus Tanner, The Sunnybank Trust

By Hidden Disabilities Sunflower The Sunflower Conversations Share

Our guests are Marcus Tanner and Dorothy Watson, CEO of The Sunnybank Trust.

“The Sunnybank Trust supports adults with a learning disability across North East Surrey to have confidence, opportunities and control over their own lives and to be able to live without prejudice and discrimination.”

In our conversation, we tackle the myths and stigma attached to learning disabilities (LD) and what action must be taken to dispel them. The statistics see less than favourable outcomes for people with an LD with mental health and employability. For the most part, this is due to barriers to access.

There is an overwhelming call to collaborate and work with people with LD to share lived experiences and provide advice to improve disability inclusion. These actions will significantly improve life opportunities and access for the LD community. 

If you are experiencing any issues discussed in this podcast, please contact your healthcare practitioner.
