NEW! Us Too: User-led Training for Social Care Staff Us Too logo
on Domestic Abuse, Learning Disabilities and Autism

Us Too: Women with learning disabilities standing up to domestic abuse**

Did you know that someone with a learning disability is three times more likely to experience domestic abuse?

The Office of National Statistics estimates that almost one in five people with learning disabilities experienced domestic abuse in 2019.

The ARC England Us Too team have spent the last two years using their experiences to deliver training to their peers and professionals about how to keep people with learning disabilities, autism or both safe from domestic abuse and how to escape a bad relationship. We are pleased that we can now offer this training as online workshops for staff and carers supporting with people with learning disabilities.

The workshops are run by two women with learning disabilities, autism or both, with lived experience, supported by Us Too Project Lead Trainer Rod Landman.

  • “We are women with learning disabilities and autism.”
  • “We have all had experience of bad relationships.”
  • “We hope you can learn from our experiences.”
  • “We talk about how to get out of a bad relationship and have a happy life.”

Our learners say: “Warm, supportive and informative.” “Amazing experience.” “Meaningful and inspiring.” “Very powerful.” “I learned so much.” “I was blown away.” “Authentic, safe and nurturing”. “Some of the best training I h ave attended”. “So valuable to hear from real people”. “Very emotive but delivered with grace and safety.” “Thank you for helping me to understand and change the way I work.” “K and K are inspiring, brave and a delight. Thank you so much.”

Anyone working in social care and supporting people with a learning disability, autism or both.

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.’
Managing medicines for adults receiving social care in the community, March 2017

But what is an ‘occupationally-competent’ person? And what assessment skills do they need?

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.

Places on these workshops cost:

  • £90 (ARC Members)
  • £120 (Non-ARC Members)
