New Digital RSE Resources and Online Training

We have a couple of exciting updates for you…


Let’s Talk About Relationships and Sex – Teenage Resources 

In January we launched the ‘Let’s Talk about Relationships and Sex’ training package. Designed specifically for the learning strengths and challenges of people who have Down’s syndrome, it aims to provide more comprehensive relationship and sex education (RSE) for adults (18+).

Following feedback from our members, we have adapted the training package and created a set of RSE resources that can be used with teenagers.

We have created five packs of digital resources that can be purchased, downloaded and delivered on a subject by subject basis by parents and carers…

The subjects covered are:

We have an extra sixth pack which is a collection of accessible, clear and uncomplicated illustrations that can be used to increase understanding of private body parts and sexual acts. 

To purchase a singular pack or all six, please CLICK HERE.

We will be offering a FREE 30-minute online session for parents and practitioners to explain the new RSE resources and how to use them. To book your spot on 21 May, 11.00 to 11.30am, please email training@downs-syndrome.org.uk 


Online Training Sessions

Online training has been in the Down’s Syndrome Association’s pipeline for a while now with the main aim for our training sessions to be more accessible to everyone around the country.

In the current situation, with coronavirus and its effects on everyday life, it is a very suitable time to launch our first set of online training sessions and webinars. You will be able to develop your knowledge of different subject areas and learn practical skills from the comfort of your own home.

We cover a range of topics from housing options to early years and we have more sessions to follow so keep your eyes peeled.
