Autism Insight Training


Our three-hour peer led Autism Insight Training can be delivered both online or offline,  gives Autistic people the opportunity to give personal, engaging and valuable insight as equals in our community and to challenge misconceptions and stereotypes surrounding Autism.

This training qualifies for Level 1 Skills for care Autism Capability Framework and is designed for organisations and businesses. The training gives people the confidence to interact with Autistic people in a positive and meaningful way and an insight into the many ways we as people can communicate with each other regardless of differences in ‘language’ or communication methods.  

 'really good training with a mix of talking, listening, games and questions'

‘Having autistic people to share their lived experiences really made the training special. So much better than just being told a list of information.’

 ‘well presented, with good visual representation and guides.’

 Learning Disability Training 

 Our peer led learning disability training has been designed to help you understand more about learning disability and how society creates barriers for us to be fully included and how those barriers can be removed. 

It is a two hour session led by 3/4 people who all have a learning disability. The session also includes understanding what we mean by person centered care and our Human Rights.

The Police comes to Sheffield Voices

South Yorkshire Police and their logo

Today South Yorkshire Police Neighbourhoods Inspectors for Sheffield City Centre and Mark Toyne our new hate crime coordinator, came to our meeting to listen to our concerns about how unsafe people with a learning disability are feeling in the town centre at the moment. We have noticed that there has been an increased number of people on the streets begging, drunk and using drugs and people in our group have reported to us that they are not feeling very safe.
