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, within their own lives – staff essentially becoming enablers not carers.

For people with complex needs, behaviours that challenge and people with autism, services need to be organised in a way which means people can exercise choice and control.

Active Support is also the pre-cursor to good Positive Behaviour Support – they complement each other perfectly.

Join us to gain an insight in this ‘Introduction to Active Support’ workshop.
This one day session 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
