New Forest Mencap has recently commissioned research into the effects of caring for adults with learning disabilities on the parents/carers as they become older themselves.  New Forest Mencap will be hosting an event to disseminate the findings of this research into our local communities so do check back for further information.  In the meantime, here is the link to this important paper https://www.bath.ac.uk/announcements/looming-crisis-for-family-carers-of-people-with-learning-disabilities/
