What is Active Support?

Active Support is a model of support that shows staff how to support people with learning disabilities to take the lead in functional and meaningful activities.

As a person-centred approach Active Support promotes inclusion; independence and choice in everyday activities; improves staff team confidence and morale; turns person centred support into person centred action and supports services to show quality of life outcomes. Active Support fits with Positive Behaviour Support as it forms a major part in primary prevention.

The one day sessions will cover:

  • The history of Active Support
  • Providing support that promotes participation and engagement
  • Looking for opportunities to engage people in meaningful activities at home and in their community
  • Simple ways of monitoring staff support
  • How to embed Active Support within your team

This workshop is aimed at Team Leaders and managers, but would also benefit senior support workers and front-line staff.

Costs

  • £80 (ARC England members)
  • £95 (Non-members)
