Event description
Come and hear about how we can be more inclusive by learning from research into co-designed jobs for people with learning disabilities

About this event

Dr Liz Oliver, Lecturer in employment law at Leeds University, will talk about her research into co-designed peer support jobs and share some insight into the peer support experience for people with learning disabilities and how we can include them more fully as peer support practitioners.

More information:

Tuesday 8th December 12.30pm - 1.30pm (Zoom)

Open to anyone interested in peer support and how to be more inclusive; we take a look at an innovative research study with CHANGE and KeyRing into the employment of people with learning disabilities via co-designed Peer Support jobs.

Before this study it was known that peer support is an important way to recognise the expertise of people with learning disabilities; also that peer support amongst people with learning disabilities has unique qualities and emancipatory potential. Peer supporters with learning disabilities can play a valuable role in the implementation of policy developments within adult social care.

What we sought to do was to co-design and recruit to a job in the provision of adult social care services and to learn, together, about the employment of peer supporters with learning disabilities through the process. Our action research project generated valuable insights into inclusive job design, recruitment and peer support, and I'd very much like to tell you a bit about it.

This webinar will include some tips on how to be more inclusive in your own peer support activities - bring your questions and experiences for the Q&A at the end!
