Celebrating 100 years of

Learning Disability



This year, 2019, marks the 100th anniversary of learning disability nursing. To celebrate we will be sharing the stories of some of our learning disability nurses with an aim to raise awareness of learning disability nursing and the amazing work and achievements that have happened in the last 100 years.

Learning disability nurses have the knowledge, skills, attitudes and abilities to work in partnership with people who have learning disabilities, their families and carers. Our aim is to ensure each individual we work with has the opportunity to recognise and achive their goals, and develop individually to fulfil their potential in all aspects of their lives.

Click on the names of our nurses below to hear about about why they became a learning disability nurse, what it means to them, what's the best thing about their job, and the changes they have seen throughout their career.
