Man receiving Be Aware Take Care trainingBe Aware Take Care is a training programme developed by Leonard Cheshire Disability. The programme supports people with disabilities, their families, friends, carers and organisations.

Be Aware Take Care aims to build confidence, provide practical information that enables disabled people to feel safe and stay safe at home and when out and about.

The training has developed an unique approach working directly with the individual on a one to one basis, focusing on their specific needs:

  • your rights to be safe
  • people in your life
  • safety in the home
  • using the emergency service
  • recognising crime
  • keeping your money safe
  • personal safety when out and about

Be Aware Take Care can be delivered in the individual’s own home or another place of their choice such as day centres, community centres, libraries etc.

The programme will be delivered over six sessions lasting approximately 1 hour per session.

Dedicated staff will use specifically designed materials that include:

  • workbooks
  • activities
  • DVD on home security
  • resource pack
