Lead Scotland (Specialists in Linking Education and Disability) is a charity that empowers disabled people and carers and those who experience exclusion to improve their lives through learning. At a local level we talk to people about their ambitions and create a plan which matches their motivation to learn, such as getting a job, becoming a volunteer or active citizen, improving family life, becoming more independent and being able to access services. Each learner has a tailored and unique service from Lead which might involve volunteer support or the loan of a digital device. At a national level, we provide information and advice on the full range of post-school learning and training opportunities, as well as influencing and informing policy development.
