Health and Wellbeing


At Linkage Adult Skills we encourage and promote the importance of a healthy lifestyle through a wide range of activities and initiatives.

In the UK, people with learning disabilities have poorer health than the general population, much of which is avoidable. Linkage Adult Skills helps people understand the full range of issues and behaviours which impact on lifelong health and wellbeing, both for the mind and the body.

From cooking healthy meals and a walking club to supporting clients to take part in local triathlons, the possibilities of things to get involved in are endless.

My son went to Linkage with no confidence. Now he doesn't want to come home because he's busy with friends. This is brilliant!
