Staff working in residential, day and domiciliary settings will all encounter learning disabilities, either in their own establishment or in establishments where clients are using the services, so they need to understand what is meant by the term "learning disability" and what they can do to lessen the impact of any disability. This workshop resource is designed for use with direct care staff and others who support or are involved with people with learning disabilities. The workshop can either be run in a single day or on a modular basis, and can be used to develop training to include staff in the statutory, voluntary and private sectors. This resource can be used for staff at varying levels as it will help staff to understand the wider service structures within which their own agency is located, and to appreciate their own and each other's roles. The video pack includes sessions on such subjects as attention, perception, memory, comprehension and coping with change.

My money matters: guidance on best practice in handling the money of people with a learning disability

Author:

Publisher:

Publication year:

Pagination:
loose leaf, CD ROM
Place of publication:
Chesterfield

Based on a survey of Association for Real Change's member organisations, which all support people with learning difficulties, the issues faced are broken into sections, including practical problems, the legal situation and auditors' requirements. The pack is founded on clear values and promotes people's rights to have control over their money. Equally, risk is thoroughly addressed and there are useful tools for assessing levels of required support alongside risk and capacity. An important section has lots of resources to help people (and their staff) develop better skills with money. One of the guide's strengths is the ARC's members' contributions; their own pilot projects offer ideas on best practice and some solutions. The Financial Passport is a simple idea that will help people explain how they should be supported. The accompanying CD-Rom contains procedures that can be adapted; plus a simple budget planning programme which some may find useful. Although the guide is aimed at support staff and auditors, much of the information could be shared with family carers.
