SEEN (Seen, Enabled, Empowered and Noticed) is a project for disabled women in Leeds, and the people that support them.
The Feel Good course, a 5 weekly group programme for women with learning disabilities, is delivered in partnership with People in Action. The sessions are tailored to the needs of the women and sessions cover the following –
- Taking care of your body
- Having good relationships
- Keeping sage
- Being confident
- Making new friends
We also offer Carers’ & Support Workers’ Workshops for those who support women with learning disabilities.
The two hour workshops cover topics such as –
- Understanding the importance of knowledge to keep people safe
- Identifying boundaries
- Where do people with learning disabilities get their information about sex?
- How to appropriately talk about sex without embarrassment
What people have said about SEEN –
Liked talking about people & different relationships.
What was most useful? ‘That lady stuff’.
It was good to share experiences & talk to other parents in a similar situation. Particularly useful to get advice from an independent person.
A group coming together who understand the same struggle to discuss them.
