One-day course

Many sexual and reproductive health services struggle to extend their services to people with learning disabilities in a meaningful way.

Staff often feel they do not have knowledge and expertise to provide a specific clinic and yet they are aware that mainstream services are not meeting the needs of clients with disabilities.

This course will help staff feel more confident to establish and run these specifically targetted services using two recent case studies.  


To support participants to develop their sexual and reproductive health services to be fully inclusive to people with learning disabilities.
