SOMERSET COUNTY COUNCIL: Getting it right in transitions: goals and aspirations

09:45 - 11:00

Supporting young people with learning disabilities to become adults can be the most exciting social work you can do. Come and be inspired by Somerset County Council social workers and young people as they talk about their lived experiences and how to strengthen communities. Topics to be covered include:

  • What’s important to young people with learning disabilities?
  • How what we learn from residents can shape the development of services for them
  • The “You Said, We Did” approach to getting it right for people
  • Listening to your residents by asking the right questions
