Our Impact Projects focus on responding to the need of the local learning disabled and/or autistic community.
Because we respond to need, the available training is subject to change.
The start dates for each training session are on a rolling programme and will be advertised regularly.
We have a wide range of Impact Projects to choose from...
Building Independent Lives Together (BuILT)
The aim of BuILT is to work with adults with learning disabilities and/or autism, their families and carers in Bristol and South Gloucestershire to enable a greater number of people to live more independent lives.
We are doing this by educating, supporting and promoting the benefits of independence by providing support groups, training events, advice and advocacy.
We run training for people with learning disabilities and/or autism on many subjects, including:
- Self-Advocacy to give people the skills, knowledge and tools to speak out for themselves.
- Independent Living Skills and Live Skills training sessions are designed to give participants the skills, knowledge and confidence to transition to independent living
Telling people their rights and helping them to speak out for themselves.
This is to enable those who lack confidence and communication skills to speak out to the people around them about their needs, wishes and feelings, and to live more independent lives.
We can change letters, forms and leaflets so that they are easy to read and understand.
We are working with the Care Forum to quality check NHS services to ensure that their resources are accessible for adults with disabilities and/or autism.
