Personal safety is very important in ensuring that people feel safe in and out of their homes.
Every year we host a conference for the people we support. In 2013, our 100 Voices conference focussed on the topic of personal safety. This topic was highlighted as something people with learning disabilities wanted us to look into.
The below guides from the Foundation of People with Learning Disabilities, have a wealth of useful information on how to stay safe and what services are out there to help.
