Welcome to the PMLD Network

The PMLD Network is a group of people committed to improving the lives of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD).

People with PMLD are unique individuals but sometimes it is helpful to talk about groups of people:

  • Who have common concerns
  • Who have distinctive needs
  • Who face barriers to being included
  • Who need help to fight for their equal rights

We bring people with PMLD and their families, carers and advocates together with statutory and voluntary agencies, we share good practice, we campaign and we provide information and support.

We want to make sure people with PMLD are fully included in society.
