An update for you this week about our Us Too project, a user-led set of peer education workshops and training for professionals about domestic abuse and learning disability/autism.
Initial evaluation suggests that the training is going well and we are hopeful that we will be able to work with domestic abuse services in Devon and Cornwall in the autumn, supporting them to become more accessible to girls and women a with learning disability and/or autumn; and after that disseminate project learning nationally.
We are well on our way to making some staff training for social care providers available online, scheduled for June/July, with pilots being arranged with Devon County Council and Plymouth City Council – please get in touch with Project Lead Rod Landman firstname.lastname@example.org if you have services in those areas.
