Learning Disability England - Help to Get More out of Meetings

Have you ever come out of a meeting and felt you hadn’t been heard?


Well Learning Disability England (LDE) are running free one-day training sessions for families who want to work positively with services and practitioners to get better outcomes for their loved ones.

The training is being held in:-
• London on 20th November from 10am to 3pm

The training will look at:-
• The role of the informal advocate
• How meetings work – the hidden stuff
• Working in partnership
• Presenting your ideas
• Negotiation skills
• Action planning and prioritising
• Staying strong

LDE is offering this training free of charge for family members of people with learning disabilities. The training will be co facilitated by a family member and a LDE team member; tea, coffee and a sandwich lunch will be provided.

The WPCC regrets that it is not able to reimburse parent carers’ expenses incurred by attending this training.

To book a place or find out more, email LDE on info@LDEngland.org.uk or telephone 0300 2100455. To take a look at their poster, please click here
