Evidence tells us that offenders with a learning disability represent a major challenge to those working in prison and community settings. By sharing the lessons learnt from a recent project, joint funded by NOMS and Calderstones NHS Foundation Trust, this presentation will highlight how this challenge presents major opportunities. Opportunities which will not only benefit offenders with a learning disability, but may have a significant impact on service delivery and efficiency. Adopting a simple approach based on communication, the project has demonstrated not only how frontline staff can be empowered but also how organisations can think more critically about how they seek to engage and inform offenders.This free seminar will seek to offer insight into the key messages, how they may be put into practice and the implications for both those commissioning and delivering services.
