Training resource manual
IPPF European Network’s Keep Me Safe project Training manual for sensitizing intermediaries on sexual rights of young people with learning disabilities was developed to help organizations train staff, educators, and caregivers on “the sexual and reproductive health and rights of young people with mild to moderate learning disabilities.” It provides examples of training activities that can be adapted for specific organizations and communities working with young people with disabilities.
