Learning disabilities



Advocacy means getting support from another person to help you express your views and wishes, and to help make sure your voice is heard. Someone who helps you in this way is called your advocate. Find out more about advocacy and how you can get an advocate.


The Devon SEND webpages can help you to find out more about apprenticeships, traineeships and supported internships. More information about careers and work for disabled people can be found on the Disability Rights UK website.
