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 Webinar

Facilitated by Learning Disability England, we have run a highly successful webinar which can be watched below. A good overview of Learn With Us, the webinar includes several extracts from the film and discussion of some of the workshop materials:

Learn With Us has been widely used within Islington and increasingly outside the borough. Click through the slides to hear what people have said about us:
