The Next Generation – Moving Staff in New Directions
Are we still training people just to care? The next generation of people with disabilities expect better.
Once upon a time the only important thing about providing care and support was to keep people safe. It’s still vitally important, but the next generation of people with disabilities expect and deserve more out of life. They expect support providers to step up a gear and offer them opportunities to acquire new skills and to participate fully in community life.
So how do we do that?
Come along and find out how other providers are responding, how it feels at the sharp end of social care and how to find funding to support your new ventures.
This FREE conference is being sponsored by RLO as part of their ongoing 20th Anniversary celebrations of supporting people with learning disabilities.
