Research in Practice for Adults: Everyone is doing it – so why can’t I? (Birmingham)

Supporting people with learning disabilities to have positive sexual relationships

Adults with learning disabilities aspire to have intimate relationships as most people do, yet often describe feeling lonely. Practice has traditionally focused on 'keeping people safe' by limiting rather than encouraging relationships.

They will also learn how to enable adults with learning disabilities to define what they want and expect from a relationship.
