Programme of activities

focus of attention

  • Living independently from parents. For adults with disabilities, independent living can mean many different things. It can mean living in their own flat on their own with support workers assisting with specific tasks throughout the week. It can mean living in supported accommodation with other people with learning disabilities and care workers. It can also mean taking responsibility for their own room and tasks around the house.

  • Professional development. We look for opportunities for students to advocate for change on both a personal and professional level. We do this by helping our students to express their needs, learning about what a good circle of support looks like and asking for the support they need, understanding their rights and having their own say on decisions that affect their lives, knowing how to find accessible information and services, having their views heard by attending meetings, speaking publicly and meeting decision-makers.

  • Independence in the сommunity. A key part is about creating wider social and community networks. DUL supports students to take part in an internship, to travel and to engage with local health services. We teach how to advocate for your own health needs, book holidays for friends. We support students to learn how to do their own online and in-person banking, budgeting and how to order things online.

As all our students have different needs and interests this requires different levels of support in advocacy our staff, always ensuring a person-centred approach.

  • Pre-and post-program meetings in the format of individual consultations for the development of individual student itineraries, based on the request and actual tasks
  • Recommendations from specialists of intensive
  • Group meetings with project psychologist as psychological support

Sessions cover a range of topics that students choose. It’s all about discussion and supporting the students to choose how they would like to work together. Students have created their own ground rules, so the whole group knows what is expected in the session.
