Life is about choices and the programme is about helping participants develop the skills and tools to make the choices that are going to help them live the healthiest, happiest and most fulfilled life as possible. This programme is designed for people who have learning/intellectual disabilities and are already involved in volunteering, paid employment, boards of management or campaigning and/or self-advocacy.
The course is designed to be practical, becoming part of a journey towards greater independence, at the same time recognising the learning style and pace needed for the individuals on the course. The programme is uniquely tailored and is designed to be practical, giving participants the opportunity to apply what they learn into their own everyday life.
The programme will cover the skills, attributes, and self-understanding that people need to develop the leadership skills they need in their current life and into the future.
Over the longer term this will develop skills within the community of people with intellectual disabilities that will ensure they are, as a community, empowered to participate as equal and valued citizens with the full range of rights that other citizens enjoy.
