WAAN Sports Games 2016

On Thursday 15th September, Wokingham Active for Adults with Additional Needs (WAAN) ran a Sports Day at Cantley Park. CLASP Superstars worked together to support each other on the day. We scored the most points and won the games!

Sports Day Medals

 

It was a great day and it was lovely to see so many people remembering teamwork and enjoying sports.

A big thank you must go to everybody at the Wokingham Sports and Leisure Team and everybody who supported the day and made it a great success!

 

Safeguarding Work

Last year, CLASP worked with Wokingham Borough Council to get our members more involved in safeguarding. We helped the Council to put their safeguarding leaflet into easy read and developed a safeguarding workshop for people with learning disabilities.

'Research in Practice for Adults (RiPfA)' wrote about this work on their blog (which you can read HERE). In March 2016, 3 Listen To Us members went to the RiPfA conference in Birmingham to talk about our work. The presentation went really well and we were really pleased with the response we received.

In July, Listen To Us delivered the presentation again as part of 3 safeguarding workshops for staff at Wokingham Borough Council.

 

Schools Training

Our training group Listen To Us has been working with the Community Wardens at Wokingham Borough Council to set up learning disability awareness training in schools.

From January to March 2016, we ran 1 hour training sessions for all year 7 tutor groups at St Crispin's School in Wokingham, to help the students understand what having a learning disability really means.

The training was also supported by the PCSOs from Thames Valley Police, so they could answer any questions the students had about hate crime. The training went really well.

We will be returning to St. Crispin's in November to deliver the training to the new year 7s.

We are also working with the local primary schools to run learning disability awareness training for their year 6 pupils.
