Why we do this training?
What we do on our training days
What we want to achieve
We deliver learning disability awareness training to groups and businesses so that people have a better understanding of what a learning disability is.
Our trainers tell you about their good and bad experiences of how people have treated them because they have a learning disability.
We want to break down barriers of what people think people with learning disabilities can do in life.
Our training sessions are run by people with learning disabilities so the participants can make a real connection with what we are saying and how changes in the way they work can be of great benefit to others.
We do group exercises that show different ways that we can communicate with each other and how easy it can be.
We all work together on the training sessions and this is how we think we can make things better for everyone in the very near future.
