Supporting adults with learning disabilities to have positive sexual relationships: Frontline Briefing (2017)

Frontline resources
Published: Feb 2017
Author: Naomi Harflett and Rachel Griffiths

Adults with learning disabilities aspire to have intimate relationships as most people do, yet often describe feeling lonely. Practice has traditionally focused on ‘keeping people safe’ by limiting rather than encouraging relationships. This briefing focuses on how practitioners can support people to have positive relationships and minimise the risk of exploitation. It also explores how to enable adults with learning disabilities to define what they want and expect from a relationship.

Aimed at: Frontline practitioners and managers who work with adults and their families.
