Love, Sex and Relationships Policy & Guidelines plus How Best to Support Me

We are an advocacy group in Chorley called ‘Voice for All’ and for the past couple of years we have been championing and campaigning for people with a learning disability to learn more about and enjoy friendships, love, sex and relationships.

Last year we were fortunate enough to be involved in a joint training course and programme for both self-advocates and support staff called ‘Y be Shy about Sex’. This was a fantastic opportunity for us all to talk openly and learn together about things like our bodies, friendships, dating, types of relationships, sex and sexuality, staying safe etc.

We were also invited by our care provider to write for them a National Staff Policy about ‘Sex and Relationships’ and since then we have written and published an easy read guide and policy called ‘Love, Sex and Relationships’.  

Since then we have written and published a leaflet about ‘How best to support me with Friendships and Relationships’.  We are very happy to be able to share them with the Supported Loving Network.
