Lead the Way
The workshop is for adults who have a learning disability, and their families and carers. People can come and go as they please, they do not need to stay for the whole session.
It will be a chance for people to have support with things like learning about Facebook, how to send an e-mail, how to keep safe on-line, how to look for things on the internet (surfing),how to fill in forms, how to look at videos and music….and lots more things. We will be holding the workshops across lots of different libraries around Calderdale so keep watching for dates and venues for a workshop near you!
For more information ring 0300 012 0416.
Lead the Way currently has spaces on the Young Leaders Course July/August for people aged 16/17 yrs who have a learning disability, autism or both.
This is a great opportunity to be involved and find out about what is happening in Calderdale.
