 Rod Landman, Regional Officer

Rod is based in Devon and is our champion for Mate Crime, a type of Hate Crime where people purporting to be friends take advantage of people with a learning disability, which was part of the Safety Net project that he managed. He is also our champion of the Helping Each Other project which supported a small number of young people with learning disabilities, who have experienced sexual exploitation, to develop their skills as trainers to go on and deliver awareness.

Rod is currently Project Officer for the Comic Relief funded Us Too project which is a user-led project, taking place in Cornwall and Devon, about women with learning disabilities and/or autism staying safe in relationships. The project will recruit a team, and will explore their experiences, and use these to design and deliver peer education workshops, and to staff supporting people with learning disabilities, mostly in social care.

Rod was previously Project Officer for the ISD and Google.org project Get SMART (Social Media Awareness and Resilience Training) project – an 11-month user-led awareness and training project for people with learning disabilities and/or autism, to help to keep them safe from grooming for extremism via social media.

Rod also delivers training courses on subjects such as MCA and DoLS, Supporting Medication as well as awareness workshops for staff on Self-neglect, Self-Harm and Sexual Exploitation of people with a learning disability.
