Keeping it Safe – Enabling young people with learning disabilities to stay safe

About this Event

Course Description:

This full day course is part of our multi-agency training programme aimed at any staff, volunteers and carers working with or supporting young people.

Training is FREE to all those working in Nottingham City and Southern Boroughs (Broxtowe, Gedling and Rushcliffe).

Training Aims:

This course builds upon the ‘Sex and Relationship’ curriculum pack developed by the team several years ago for students with mild to moderate learning disabilities and utilises a range of current, appropriate resources that can be used with groups or on a one to one basis to support effective RSE with young people with learning disabilities.

The training will provide the current context and offers:

  • Practical ideas to enable participants to increase young people’s awareness of sexual health by proactively engaging them in RSE.
  • The promotion of positive and healthy relationships.
  • Strategies to enable young people to make informed decisions about their sexual health.
  • Support for participants to enable young people to reduce sexual risk taking behaviour and to stay safe, including e-safety and CSE.

Young people with learning disabilities are more likely to have experienced neglect, sexual violence, be on child protection plans, have lower levels of sexual knowledge and experience, are at increased risk to on line grooming yet many do not receive RSE.
