Skills for Care and CHANGE Working Group Workshops

/, Health & Care, Learning Disability, MailChimp/Skills for Care and CHANGE Working Group Workshops

Skills for Care and CHANGE would like to invite you to join workshops to talk about our mental health and our feelings.

Please download an invitation for people with learning disabilities to come to three workshops and for social care staff to come to the last two workshops.

We have already sent one invitation out, some professionals have said they can come and some people with learning disabilities, but we would really love more people to come and talk together about our mental health and our feelings.

We are hoping that we can all share our thoughts and ideas together so that we can create two guides.

One guide will be for staff working in social care, supporting them to be more open, talk about and understand our mental health.

The other guide will be an accessible guide for people with learning disabilities who use social care.

Please share this with anyone you know who might want to come.  To say that you are coming there’s an online form to fill in here; https://www.skillsforcare.org.uk/Forms-and-polls-library/Working-group-supporting-people-with-a-learning-disability2.aspx

If you have already filled this in you don’t need to do it again.

If you need any help with the form please call  0113 245 1716. and ask for someone in the policy team, ideally Claire Dunn

The workshop dates are 20th  September,  30th October and 27th  November. They will be in Leeds.
