New Training Launched for Organisations Supporting People With Learning Disabilities
NDTi is launching Community Lives, an evidence and experience based training programme designed for organisations and groups supporting people with learning disabilities.
Community Lives training will help staff to learn new ways of supporting people (including people with complex needs) to lead ‘ordinary lives’ outside the boundaries of traditional services. By making the most of opportunities and resources in their communities, people will enjoy better lives whilst their support providers also achieve better value for money in these tough financial times. The training is flexible, high quality and very cost effective. One- and four-day courses are available – or NDTi can tailor-make courses to organisations’ exact requirements. Mixed groups of up to 30 people can take part including people with learning disabilities, staff supporting them, carers and family members. Community Lives helps people to develop their own skills and knowledge, understand what community inclusion really means and how supporting it helps organisations to be more person centred.
