Supported Loving - social media campaign launched

Neval and Mark have been together for more than 10 years. They met at a day service for people with learning disabilities and formed a close friendship.

Supported Loving is launched, a social media campaign asking why only 3% of people with learning disabilities live as part of a couple, compared to 70% of the general population.

Research shows that, like everyone else, people with learning disabilities want a loving relationship with a partner, which is why Choice Support is launching Supported Loving.

Supported Loving grew out of PhD research conducted by our Quality Analyst Dr Claire Bates on why people with learning disabilities find it difficult to have relationships. Dr Bates has found that good support can make all the difference.

Supported Loving is a social media campaign giving you the opportunity to share your story and have a discussion about what good support around relationships means to you.
