One of the people we support attended the RIX Centre Multi Media course and fed back to his housemates how good it was. GY seemed very interested and was supported to apply for the course. GY attended the course over a period of 13 weeks. The aim of the course was to get individuals with learning disabilities involved with new technology so that they could be assisted to communicate their preferences, wishes and dreams. Individuals were supported to create a person-centred plan using a range of media including, music, photos and films.
Supporting service users with their wills
Whilst preparing the financial assessment forms (as per the organisation's Finance Policy and Procedure) for two ageing people we support, it was recommended by us that Wills be put in place for them. With both the service users' agreement, Age Concern (now Age UK) were contacted by us to provide the resource.
