Learning Disabilities - two new websites for anyone supporting a person with a learning disability in Scotland.

1. The Knowledge Network has been developed by NHS Education for Scotland to provide a 'one stop shop' for finding and sharing knowledge, including evidence, learning resources, legislation, standards and guidelines, publications and topics such as nutrition, profound and multiple learning disabilities, autism spectrum and many more.

2. Better Info Better Lives has been developed by the Scottish Consortium for Learning Disability in partnership with NHS Education for Scotland. This website contains accessible social care information for people with learning disabilities, their families and people who work with them.

The website has lots of information on services and support and all the information is easy to understand. Topics on the website include employment, housing and transitions.

The design of the website is clear and accessible so that it is easy for people to find the information they need. The information is available in a variety of accessible formats including easy read, plain English, audio and video.
