Impact Projects help adults with a learning disability to learn new skills,

become more confident, make their own choices and live as independently as they choose.




Hivewatch

Working with Healthwatch to quality check NHS services and ensure that their resources are accessible for adults with disabilities and/or autism. More information about Healthwatch can be found here.

Building Independent Lives Together (BuILT)

The aim of Built is to work with adults with learning disabilities and/or autism, their families and carers in Bristol and South Gloucestershire to enable a greater number of people to live more independent lives.


We are doing this by educating, supporting and promoting the benefits of independence by providing support groups, training events, advice and advocacy.


Advocacy

Telling people their rights and helping them to speak out for themselves. This is to enable those who lack confidence and communication skills to speak out to people around them about their wishes and feelings and to live more independent lives.


Training

We run training for people with learning disabilities on lots of subjects, including:


- Self-Advocacy, to give people the skills, knowledge and tools to speak out for themselves

- Independent Living Skills and Life Skills training sessions are designed to give participants the skills, knowledge and confidence to make the transition to independent living


*the start dates for each training session are on a rolling programme and will be advertised regularly



Easy Read

We can change letters, forms and leaflets so that they are easy to read and understand.
