The need for reducing marginalization of people with learning disabilities (PwLD) related to their leisure time will be met by developing the ACCESS to Leisure training manuals and courses. The key to better participation rates is improving access, involving both human & technical innovation. There is a need for professionals & informal helpers to be better equipped to help PwLD access services (e.g. using supported decision-making, online & offline tools) & improve their community participation.

The need to increase the community participation of PwLD will be met by working together with the three target groups (PwLD, professionals & local supporters) and strengthening their cooperation regarding the leisure time of PwLD. Also, digital devices offer many opportunities that could help PwLD spend their free time in a more inclusive, freely chosen way.
