Welcome to #ENABLE65
ENABLE Scotland is 65 years old this year! That’s 65 years of transforming lives and communities across Scotland. Will you help us be there for the next 65?
For the past 65 years, ENABLE Scotland have worked to create an equal society for every person who has a learning disability. Together, we:
• Won the right for children to get an education in the 1970s
• Got people out of long stay institutions in the 1990s
• Won the right for people to direct their own care and support in the 2000s
We have a lot to be proud of. But we still have a lot to do.
In 2019, families still need our support. People who have learning disabilities are still lonely and isolated. When they are not ignored, they are often bullied. Most don’t have jobs and don’t have the prospect of going to university. People will die 20 years younger than the general population, and less than 1 in 3 of the people we support can name at least one close friend. But with your help, the ENABLE Scotland family can – and does – change all that.
With your support, we will continue breaking down barriers and continue the vital work we do for thousands of adults and children with a learning disability. This year, we need you more than ever to support us for the next 65 years of helping people to make friends, to get support at school, to live independently, to get a job. We know you care – because we know you see these barriers, every day, in the lives of the people you support. It is time to act.
Donate – Make a one-off donation to support the work of ENABLE Scotland.
Commit – Help us support more people by signing up to a monthly gift and support our future for the next 65 years.
As we look ahead to the future of ENABLE Scotland, we want to celebrate the achievements of our members in bringing down barriers, but more importantly, how we can work together to increase our impact on society for the next generation of people with a learning disability.
