Online Harms and Grooming: Supporting Adults with Learning Disabilities and Autism to Stay Safe on Social Media: A Workshop for Support Staff
This half day workshop is designed to raise awareness of online harms (especially grooming) for those with a learning disability and autistic people. It is aimed at social care support staff.
People with learning disabilities and autistic people are at disproportionate risk from online harms. ARC England’s experience of user-led projects on mate crime, sexual exploitation, and social media grooming turned up a host of alarming stories. Get SMART found that nearly all the young people involved in the project preferred their life online to the ‘real’ world and that the staff supporting them were not equipped to respond to this profound cultural shift.
Often individuals who get into trouble online are simply banned from the use of the internet and social media. This training argues that this approach is ineffective, against human rights legislation and actually counter-productive. A more mature response is needed. This new ARC England workshop encourages positive engagement with the people most at risk, utilising harm mitigation and risk enablement approaches.
It looks at how to intervene and support those at risk. The workshop draws on learning from:
- ARC projects about mate crime, sexual exploitation, and social media grooming for radicalisation and extremism.
- Court of Protection case law.
- Bond & Phippen: ‘Safeguarding Adults Online’ [book]
- Background: what are we afraid of?
- Radicalisation, learning disability and autism
- ‘Get SMART’ project findings
- Online harms: what are the risks?
- Grooming: risk factors, process and indicators
- What does and doesn’t work?
- Key tools: MCA and Risk Enablement
- What next?
The workshop is highly interactive and comprise tutor input, discussions, case studies, polls, small group work and reflections on assignments.
Anyone working in social care and supporting people with a learning disability, autism or both.

Who Assesses the Assessors?
Medication Competence in Community and Residential Settings
A new ARC England live online workshop which will ensure a high quality and consistent approach to the handling of medication across your organisation.
**NICE say that ‘**Care workers completing [Medication] training should be observed and supervised by a competent person in advance of administering medication for the first time. This should be an occupationally-competent person working for the provider, not an external trainer.
Managers, supervisors and assessors are responsible for judging the competence of their care workers’ ability to safely administer medication for people who use the service.’

This new ARC England workshop is aimed at managers, supervisors and assessors, equipping them with the skills, knowledge and confidence to assess the competence of others.
