Introduction from Neil

Hi. I’m Neil, as you will have seen by my user name. I’ve spent many years working with, or for, people with learning disabilities in a range of settings. Currently I wear two hats, PhD student and I am involved with a small independent non-profit organisation which runs some online communities in the learning disabilities and mental health fields. I’ve combined these two roles to support and research the development of this online community here in Oxfordshire. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me if I can help in any way or if you have any questions about this online community or my research - you can contact me by private message here (click on your user icon on the top right of the page) or by emailing

It has been a real pleasure meeting and working with the many people who have helped developed the website and our community here.
