Promoting person centred support and positive outcomes DVD

This training DVD illustrates best practice for person-centred active support, in a variety of contexts. Specifically, it is about supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Featuring a number of people supported by United Response, the film illustrates how using person-centred active support can promote social inclusion, independence and control for people with learning disabilities – including those with complex needs, such as autism or challenging behaviour.
