Building Bridges Training

We are an independent social enterprise which makes a difference to the lives of people with a learning disability through delivering training and research. Building Bridges Training enables people with a learning disability to be included and have full and valued roles in their local community. We do this through the following five activities;

1. Inclusive research with people with a learning disability to understand the issues that affect the lives of people with a learning disability. We have a research group that meet monthly, plus additional project work depending on current funding. We have undertaken research projects on topics such as living independently, claiming PIP, and currently on the election and politics.

2. Training staff who work with people with a learning disability such as giving good support to parents with a learning disability, setting up a social enterprise.

3. Training staff from mainstream organisations so they can better understand and support people with a learning disability who use their services.

4. Delivering courses for people with a learning disability on topics such as financial capability ‘Managing my Money’ and well-being ‘Look After Yourself’.

5. Producing resources; these include good practice guidelines for staff such as producing easy read information and easy read resources for people with a learning disability such as a keep safe check list, money and banking dictionary.
