Support from the Islington community for people with learning disabilities

Support from the Islington community is available to residents with a learning disability all across the borough.

Islington Learning Disabilities Partnership

This is an innovative partnership of services that help people with learning disabilities. It is the first port of call for many adults with learning disabilities in the borough.

To find out the address of the Partnership and their contact details visit the ‘Islington Learning Disabilities Partnership’ details page.

Staying active

For all of us, but especially those of us who have learning disabilities, it can sometimes be challenging to keep healthy, stay active and meet people.

The Adults Directory is full of opportunities for adults with learning disabilities to keep fit and get out and about, from swimming and cricket to short breaks to the seaside.

Digital skills

As more and more of life’s basics, from paying bills to staying in touch with family and friends, are moving online, it’s becoming really important for people with learning disabilities to have the confidence and skills to use the computer and internet effectively.

Thankfully there are lots of services across Islington to support you in doing so, like the Friendship Computer Network at Manor Gardens. For a full list of services, please see the Adults Directory.


With a little bit of extra support, a lot of Islington residents with learning disabilities find it hugely rewarding to get involved in the creative arts.

Arts groups can be a great way to express yourself, meet people, and stay involved in the community.

Search ‘arts’ on the Adults Directory to find all the opportunities in Islington.


Islington’s 11 libraries offer a place for adults with learning disabilities, along with the whole community, to get online, meet other people and attend interesting events. To find your local library, please visit our Libraries home page.
