Supporting People’s Communication Needs

LEARNING HUB | 25th November 2023

Supporting People’s Communication Needs has been developed in partnership with the SOLD Network.

The course is for people working in the justice sector and aims to enhance understanding of how to meet communication needs. Support, guidance and materials in this resource come from the SOLD User Group of people with cognitive and neurological impairments who have experience of the criminal justice system. The experiences of people working in justice are also shared throughout.

The learning objectives are;

  • Recognise when people need support with communication needs
  • Adapt communication styles and methods to meet people with communication difficulties needs
  • Identify good practice in meeting communication needs in your own area of work
  • Identify how other justice professionals adapt their practices to support communication needs
