BILD is the British Institute of Learning Disabilities. We want people with learning disabilities to be valued equally, participate fully in their communities and be treated with dignity and respect.

Our services help develop the organisations who provide services, and the people who give support.

That way we play a part in making sure people are supported with dignity and respect and can make choices and decisions about their lives.

We also campaign for proper funding for support for people with learning disabilties and their family carers, and against bad practice as witnessed a Winterbourne View.

The key objective of the National Family Carer Network is to work together to promote better life chances for families that include someone with a learning disability. By linking groups and organisations we give a national focus to a wide range of policy issues concerning family carers of adults with a learning disability. These family carers increasingly include people with a learning disability who are family carers in their own right.

The Network shares ideas and the development of good practice.  We would like to hear from you if you feel your work would benefit from a family carer perspective.  We circulate a weekly bulletin and information highlighting key national and local developments. Regular events enable groups, organisations and individual family carers to come together to share ideas and to discuss policy issues.
