As many of you know, caring for a relative with severe learning disabilities can be difficult and isolating; and when their behaviour is challenging it impacts the whole family. Families need specialist information and support, but there is not enough practical help and support available to them.
We need your vote to provide this support to families.
Our project Learning Disabilities – Supporting Families has been shortlisted for funding from National Lottery’s the People’s Projects. If we get this funding we will run challenging behaviour workshops for families throughout the Meridian East region. The workshops have already been delivered to many families, who have told us how helpful they were. Now we want to reach more families who we know are struggling or in crisis.
Our workshops will give around 500 of families the skills and knowledge to understand the reasons for the behaviour, and how to prevent it or respond to it safely. They really do make a long term change to the person and their whole family’s lives.
Please vote for Learning Disabilities – Supporting Families now, to make a difference to families’ lives.
