Fellowship opportunities for people with learning disabilities in Scotland

Scottish Commission for Learning Disability is working in partnership with the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) to provide six new Fellowship opportunities for people with learning disabilities in Scotland.

The mission of the RSA is to enrich society through ideas and action. By sharing powerful ideas and carrying out cutting-edge research, they build networks and opportunities for people to collaborate – creating fulfilling lives and a flourishing society.

Together, we want to recognise people’s skills and talents and help them realise their unique creative ideas to achieve social change. We have a shared commitment to improve access to support and resources for people with learning disabilities.

These opportunities are open to anyone with a learning disability in Scotland who wants their creative idea to become a reality. So if you have an idea for a product, group, performance or business venture – this is for you!

The RSA Fellowship will give you access to a worldwide network of over 27,000 people who are all interested in putting creative ideas into action. You’ll be able to share your ideas with other Fellows, get advice on what to do next, and find the support you need to make an impact.

As a Fellow, you’d also be able to apply for small grants under the RSA Catalyst Programme. It costs money to be an RSA Fellow, but SCLD is funding six lifetime Fellowships, and we’ll also provide mentor support for the first two years to make sure you get the most out of the opportunity.

All six new Fellows will be invited to an awards ceremony held during Learning Disability Week to celebrate their success and put the spotlight on their ideas.
