The fact that people with learning disabilities are living longer raises many questions about how they can be supported to have a good life with opportunities to be involved and connected with others into old age.

This handbook describes how to run facilitated peer support groups where people use their understanding and experiences to help each other, aiming to help people with learning disabilities experience a greater sense of well-being as they grow older.
