On the community later this month, our focus will be on Learning Difficulties, including, among others, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia and Autism.

If you, or someone close to you, is living with Learning Difficulties, it can be helpful to get support that’s local to you. With this in mind, we’ve found four organisations from across England and Wales who you might find useful.


Yorkshire Rose Dyslexia strives for a neuro-diverse friendly society. They organise fun events for both kids and parents, arrange seminars on topics that might be relevant to you and operate a support helpline for when you need information.

Helen Arkell offer Dyslexia support to both children and adults, providing assessments, consultations and specialist tuition to help people with Dyslexia realise their potential.

The Dyslexia Association of London hosts a monthly Adult Dyslexia support group as well as regular events to help adults with dyslexia unlock opportunities.

Tomorrow’s Generation helps young people (between the ages of 6 and 16) and their families cope with Dyslexia. During term time, you can visit their Dyslexia Learning Centre in Lisvane, Cardiff which offers Launchpad for Learning sessions for children aged between 7 and 11 years old.
