We work in partnership with The U Night Group, Voice4All and other partners, to offer friendships, sex and relationship training and online safety training to people with learning disabilities and/or autism, their support staff and professionals working in health and social care. We are also developing new courses on safe friendships and LGBTQ awareness. These can be delivered online or face-to-face. Where people require support, support staff and family members are encouraged to take part too.
All of our courses are aimed at people with learning disabilities and/or autism and have been co-designed and are co-delivered by our friendship and relationship ambassadors.
We provide training directly to people with a learning disability and/or autism or can be commissioned by organisations who may want to train a number of people that they support.
We can offer the following courses:
How To Date
On our popular half day How To Date course, you will learn about how relationships work, staying safe, communication and the rules of dating. This course enables people to feel confident when dating.
Staying Safe in Relationships
On this one day course you will improve your knowledge about personal and digital safety, be able to state some important qualities in a healthy relationship, possible dangers to personal safety and the law around consent.
