Leep1 Digital Survey and Consultation Session

The Leep1 – Leeds People First team have put together a survey with Jez from Forum Central. It is about digital skills and is for adults with learning disabilities and autistic adults living in Leeds.

It asks a few questions about using things like websites and apps. They are about how confident you are when using digital technology.

The survey is available online. To take it, please click on this button:

What you say in the survey will help services in Leeds to know what can be done to help improve access to technology.

Consultation sessions

Starting in mid-January, Leep1 will be running some consultation sessions on using digital skills.

We are looking for 8 learning disabled and/or autistic adult participants. They will be paid £10 per hourly session via voucher with 5 sessions in total. We would like as many people to fill out the survey as possible too. The ALaDDIN members are asking their organisations to get one of their members to become a consultee and an ambassador for their organisations.

If you would like to take part in the sessions or have any questions, please email manager@leep1.co.uk or call the Leep1 office on 0113 378 1877.

ALaDDIN – The Autism & Learning Disability Digital Inclusion Network

Learning disability and autism services from across Leeds have joined together to promote digital inclusion, and have released a new video showcasing the opportunities for people to interact online in all sorts of creative ways.

The Autism & Learning Disability Digital Inclusion Network (‘ALaDDIN’) has been formed through the coming together of 20 third-sector organisations in the city to improve digital inclusion and participation for people with autism or learning disabilities, supporting the ambition to make Leeds the most digitally inclusive city for everyone.

ALaDDIN’s new short film was released during #getonlineweek, a campaign by Good Things Foundation.  The film is a fun and vibrant whistle-stop tour of local third-sector organisations, showcasing how each has responded creatively to the pandemic by supporting their members to get online and take part in a wide range of activities.
