Learning Disability Partnership Board

CLASP is an exciting, interactive and supportive charity, supporting adults with learning disabilities in the Wokingham Borough and surrounding areas. We offer a range of services which include having lots of fun but also working hard to make a positive difference to our community.

Our mission is: “To develop independence through self-advocacy for adults living with a learning disability”.  We deliver this through workshops and training, providing resources and signposting, and peer support.  We’re a small team of staff, volunteers and trustees and are a well-established part of the learning disability community.

CLASP believes that everyone should be valued and treated equally.  Staff and self-advocates work together to raise awareness of learning disabilities and important issues affecting the local learning disability community.  We empower people with learning disabilities to have the same opportunities and choices as everyone else.  Self-advocates are involved in all areas of the charity’s delivery and our Board of Trustees and staff team includes people with learning disabilities.

CLASP are proud to run the Learning Disability Partnership Board (LDPB) for Wokingham Borough Council. This is a network for learning disability community.

We all work together to look for opportunities to make the borough a better place for people with learning disabilities and their families.

We hold roadshows 4 or 5 times a year on a Tuesday morning at various locations around the borough.  We also celebrate key weeks in the year like Mental Health Awareness Week where we hold a variety of activities and welcome guest speakers who offer us advise and support.  

It is free to join and we set up a calendar of meetings at the beginning of each year which we can send you or you can see it on our website or Facebook pages.
