Knowsley Disability Concern

From January to July 2018, 38 adults with learning disabilities (aged from 18 to over 65 years) completed the BIG pathway programme of learning and development. The BIG Pathway covers a range of topics including road safety, money management, photography skills, communication skills, team building, leadership, confidence and self-advocacy skills.

The programme is delivered across 5 locations in Knowsley – Stockbridge Village Activity Base, Kirkby Leisure Centre, Northwood Community Centre, and Acorn Farm.

Participants achieved a variety of learning outcomes including improved awareness of personal strengths and talents, improved confidence (in social situations and when using public transport), better team working, understanding the value of money, improved understanding of roles in society, jobs and employment opportunities, improved skills around job searches, developing a CV and interview techniques.

All participants have requested to continue their learning and have enrolled on to the next BIG Pathway and / or Managing My Money programme. In addition, a group of participants have set up a small social enterprise aimed at providing training workshops for health and social care staff in producing accessible ‘easy read’ information.
