Forwarded from the SAPAG Group, Sheffield:
Learning Disability England in partnership with Together Matters are running two workshops on support for family carers to make plans for the future. It would be great if you could share them with anyone who would be interested!
Session 1: 22nd September 10am
Session 1 will be an introduction to planning for the future based on the Thinking Ahead guides going through the different parts of the jigsaw that help families to have conversations and take steps in the areas important to them as a family.
More info and sign up here
Session 2: 2nd October at 10am
The second workshop will build on the first one with a focus on making a plan for emergencies. It will cover the gathering of essential information and how to begin to develop a network of people who might be able to help out.
more info and sign up to session 2 here.
These workshops will be addressed to family carers of adults with a learning disability and/or autism to introduce ideas to help get started with planning for the future. People who support this group of family carers, including older family carers, and those who commission support for family carers are also welcome.
