Bromley Together run a number of different groups for adults over 18 with a learning disability or learning difficulty who live independently in the community with little or no support, or who live in supported living.
The groups we run include a Speaking Up Group, a Members meeting, a Young Adults group (18-30), a Lads group and a Ladies group. We also run some joint groups with people from Bexley, which include the A Team and All Stars.

- Get support if people need it
- Share experiences
- Speak up and learn about our rights and things that matter to us
- Promote self-advocacy for adults with learning disabilities living in supported living in Bromley
- Use creativity and technology to get our stories heard
