The Supported Loving network has produced a series of guides to help support people with learning disabilities and autistic people with issues around sex and relationships.
Supported Loving is a human rights-based campaign, with associated network meetings, hosted by Choice Support.
The network includes people with learning disabilities and/or autistic people, family members, and professionals from varied disciplines and sectors including social care, the NHS, sexual health professionals, trainers and educators, academics, students and psychologists.
The Supported Loving toolkit has been created in the true collaborative spirit that embodies the network. ‘Members’ volunteered to write a section, using their expertise to help guide others. We hope you find the toolkit useful. Authors’ details are included if you want further advice.
