Finding love can be a wonderful thing - but only 3% of people with learning disabilities in the UK live as part of a couple. Our sister charity Choice Support set up an exciting campaign called Supported Loving, as a result of some research they carried out to find out why forming and maintaining relationships can be so difficult.

So why is it so difficult? Dr Claire Bates, who did the research as part of her doctorate, found that in many situations it was good staff support that made the difference.

This campaign was nominated for a 3rd Sector Care Awards 2017 - and won. Congratulations to the Supported Loving team!

Dr Claire Bates tell us: "we were overwhelmed and so pleased to win and that the award goes to all Supported Loving members who, without them, this would not have happened. We will continue working together to make love a reality for all."

For more information, you can follow Supported Loving on Twitter or visit Choice Support's website.
