ABC stands for Awareness, Balance, and Choice. The project supports both people aged 11 upwards who have a learning disability (LD) or autism (A), and their parents and professionals. Dhiverse aims for inclusivity and equality in everything they do, and they want everyone to have the opportunity to be equipped to make informed choices and decisions around sexual health, consensual and pleasurable sexual activity, healthy relationships and personal safety.
The ‘ABC Programme’ is a short-term educational, age and ability appropriate programme for anyone aged 11 upwards who has a LD or A and would like support around sexual health, sexual and intimate relationships, online safety, and potential risky sexual behaviours.
The ‘Understanding ABC’ workshop aims to help parents, carers and professionals to understand the ABC Programme and to explore the relationship and sexual needs of people with a LD or A.
For more information on any aspect of the ABC Project, to check availability or to make a booking please contact Liz MacKenzie, ABC Project Manager on 07985 447846 or at elizabet[email protected]. You can find more info by clicking here.
