Following the interest in the Love on the Net and Let’s talk about Sex Baby sessions talking about sexual health and relationships for adults with learning disabilities, Lead the Way are planning bitesize training packages for staff members looking at the Legislative Framework to support somebody to have Happy Healthy Relationships. This is in line with current CQC guidance on Supporting Personal Relationships.

Please note these are aimed at professionals and carers.
