As a part of the launch of the Kent Surrey Sussex Learning Disability Community of Practice in June, we offered an incentive for participants to complete the electronic evaluation forms.
This period has now closed and we are beginning to sort through your feedback, more details of this process can be found by clicking here. If you’d like to be involved in this process please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Through a process of random selection of all those that submitted evaluations we are pleased to advise that Lindsey Griffiths from Sussex Partnership Trust has won a six month free subscription to Books Beyond Words application.

During 2015 the Kent and Medway Learning Disability Community of Practice in partnership with East Kent Hospitals Clinical Education and three experts by experience have been running half day workshops for mainstream healthcare professionals.
The aims of the programme has been to explore definitions of learning disabilities, the evidence base and legal frameworks, with a view to encouraging participants to explore what ‘reasonable adjustments’ might mean in their work context. More details of these can be found here.
The outcome of this project is a conference to report back on the outcomes, and for individuals and teams to share how they make adjustments for people with learning disabilities. We are pleased to share the National Clinical Director for Learning Disabilities at NHS England Dominic Slowie will be opening the event.
The target audience for this event is non-learning disability professionals.
