Do you work in the UK with parents who have learning difficulties or learning disabilities?

BR100Beth Tarleton writes: In September 2016, WTPN will be holding a series of 5 free seminars around the country to speak about updated Good Practice Guidance on working with parents with a learning disability - and its role in helping to ensure that the human rights of parents with learning difficulties, and those of their children, are respected.

These free, half-day seminars will also provide some practical insights into working with fathers with learning difficulties and, at the Plymouth venue, findings of recent research on the challenges to participation: parents, capacity and the courts.

We are particularly keen to meet managers, commissioners and others who hold any responsibility for ensuring that policies, practices and procedures respect the rights of the families with whom they work. ​

Do come! You can book at:

London -12th September - 3 pm

Leeds - 13th September - 10 am

Plymouth - 21st September -10 am

Bristol - 22nd September - 10 am

Coventry - 26th September - 2 pm
