Members of St Anne’s “Doing It My Way” team attended and ran workshops at the BILD “Growing Older with Learning disabilities “conference hosted at Skills for Care HQ in Tavistock Square London.
Our workshops showcased the work we have done, and we were asked lots of questions about how to implement our work and the need to communicate effectively and sensitively even in complex situations. The event was well attended with around 120 participants.
Our workshops were absolutely stacked out with rows of participants 2 deep at times! We were very pleased the enthusiasm shown for our project. Nicky and Marnie were both excellent sharing knowledge.
We got great feedback about our project and a lot of compliments including from the academics
who were from University of South Wales who undertook national research. Our social media tweets have been seen by nearly 1000 people, so we certainly have positively raised our profile.
