Tackling social exclusion which can lead to social isolation and loneliness is an important current issue. People with a learning disability have a right to be full members of their communities, yet often experience social exclusion. Community connections play a key role in people developing reciprocal relationships. It is therefore important to know the barriers to full inclusion. The chapter draws on the literature on both friendships and social exclusion, starting with the social history of people with a learning disability, to give a context to their lives today. It then discusses some of the social barriers they can experience and identifies some of the approaches and tools that can be used to facilitate community connections and the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with other people.
