Our Essential Self Advocacy Toolkit is a new and comprehensive document co-produced with Stanley’s Community Centre and Morecambe Bay CCG. The toolkit is created by those who have experience in self advocacy. The Self Advocacy Toolkit is made up of four main sections, taking you through the knowledge, skills and confidence to become your own best advocate, before introducing you to helpful tools that will support you to self advocate. You can download this toolkit as one document, or as the separate sections, depending on where you feel you need the most help. You will also find our tools available to download individually, so that you can download, print and use whenever you need to.
Our mental health self help toolkits provide practical information and support written in plain English, for people who have been admitted to hospital because of mental ill health. The information booklets allow you to advocate for yourself by giving you key information about your situation, your rights and your choices. They also include handy yet simple tools to help you with your recovery. These guides may also be useful for your family and friends to understand what is happening to you and how they can support you.
The Justice for LB Toolkit has been co-produced with groups across Lancashire. It is a resource kit aimed at giving professionals the tools to help those with learning difficulties become more involved with their care assessments. It also provides important information and guidelines about working with people who have learning disabilities, communication or cognitive issues. Our Justice for LB Toolkit was created from feedback from those who have benefited from our support, those with learning difficulties and those who have undergone care assessments. What is Justice for LB? Connor Sparrowhawk, aka ‘LB,’ was a young man who had a preventable death whilst in an assessment unit (managed by Southern Health NHS Trust) on 4th July 2013. The Justice for LB campaign is about raising the awareness of the need for professionals to ensure they take an holistic approach to assessments. Looking at the whole person rather than just an issue and using the support networks around them for comprehensive and person centred assessments. This will hopefully avoid future unnecessary deaths like Connor's.
We also have two Communication Toolkits as part of our Justice for LB Toolkit. These can be used to help communicate with people who have communication difficulties, using symbols rather than photographs to meet a wider audience.
