New Year Zoom Shielding Project for Families and People with Learning Disabilities

Please can I share about an online project called Making Sense of Covid 19- Family Experiences of Shielding. This is being run by Making Families Count and facilitated by Sustainable Source. We are two small social enterprises.

This is going to be held on Zoom, starting in the New Year with Welcome Sessions on 13th January.

We would really love to hear from families who have been shielding a family member and from people with learning disabilities who have been shielding.

Our aim is to use simple creative techniques, using art, photos, recordings and other creative ways of hearing your stories. These will be shared to help improve support with health and social care services

We are going to have sessions especially for people with learning disabilities that are accessible and sessions for families.

Please see the easy read flyer inviting people with learning disabilities to the Welcome session on 13th January at 11 am and general info flyer with dates and times for family carers.

Thank you.
