Session 2 —  25 November 14.00 to 15.15

Supporting people with learning disabilities to keep busy, connect and learn. 

Covid-19 has significantly restricted community opportunities for people. Individuals, their families and supporters have needed to revisit ways to make life more interesting at home. Feedback from our specialist personal development community courses praises how well we engage people in meaningful activity and adapt what we do to meet individual need.

We aim to share our learning and reflect on how our approach can be used in people’s homes. Our focus is on practical activities and how we as supporters can best use our knowledge and skills to maximise engagement, achievement, and enjoyment.

We hope the webinar will also inspire people to share their own ideas and tips to make life more interesting for us all.
