Genuine and rewarding partnership between family carers and services requires good support and training for staff.

With Learn With Us we have created a ground breaking film and training resource designed to respond to that learning need. The beautifully produced 45-minute documentary gives remarkable and unusual insights into the experiences of family carers, and of the staff who support their relatives with learning disabilities.

Our unique training resource provides all the materials required to facilitate a 3-hour workshop, using the film to generate discussion and with exercises and handouts to promote learning and effective partnership.

Learn With Us has been widely used within Islington and London boroughs. Here’s what people have said about us:

  • “Learn With Us” filled a gap in my training I didn’t know existed till today.

    The film has been useful in offering new perspectives and thinking in a more in depth way about the pressure of being a family carer. I think it will allow me to be more reflective when working with families and facing obstacles. It was very thought provoking.

  • Seeing the family carers in a much more rounded way

    Building real, meaningful relationships with those individuals and valuing them in themselves.

  • Good to see the point of view of both parents and support workers.

    I have expanded my knowledge about the relationship between family carers and support workers, and the issues that can easily arise.
