End of Life and Bereavement Support for People with a Learning Disability

/, Learning Disability/End of Life and Bereavement Support for People with a Learning Disability
Can you help us design a training course to support end of life and bereavement services for people with a learning disability?

People with a learning disability are living longer – which is great news, but we know there are still gaps in the way people are supported in later life.

One of these areas is end of life planning and bereavement counselling, and the support on offer in Leeds to help people cope when they have lost a loved one.

  • Does your organisation offer this kind of support?
  • Would you like to provide more training for your staff to ensure they are confident to have these conversations in the future?
Then we want to meet you!

Tenfold is working with Leeds Bereavement Forum to develop a training course that will address the gaps in end of life and bereavement service provision for people who need extra support.

We would like to meet Tenfold members who can help us to co-design this training course, so that we get it right for support workers who want to help people in the future.

We are holding an exploratory session on Thursday 9 May, (10.00am – 12.30pm) at Blacks Solicitors’ Training Room, City Point, 29 King St, Leeds LS1 2HL.

The session will be a chance for you to input into the development of this new and much needed training.

Please let us know if you can join us, refreshments will be provided.

To reserve your place, please contact Hello@forumcentral.org.uk or telephone Kath on 07576 952527
