Learning Disability Week is underway

This annual campaign, led by Mencap and running until 25 August, celebrates the strength and courage of people with a learning disability, their families and carers.

This year, it is celebrating families and the everyday superheroes who make all the difference and, most importantly, make us smile.

If you know someone who is doing amazing things, let them know about the campaign and encourage them or their family to share their story.

Mencap are asking people to tell their story by sending a tweet (using the hashtag #LDWeek13), posting on Facebook, writing a blog, sharing a photo or emailing.

Check out these superheroes for inspiration. Meanwhile, more information on the campaign can be found here,
