Consultation on the content of a curriculum about disability
Triangle have been conducting a consultation exercise on behalf of the Royal College of Paediatricians and Child Health (RCPCH). The consultation is about a new Department of Health Funded ELearning portal (a website that stores and presents materials of online learning). The aim is to create learning resources that encourage people to adopt positive attitudes, enabling behaviours and a problem solving approach when engaging with disabled children and young adults who access their services.
Triangle is very excited about this project and have been consulting with the following stakeholder groups; disabled children and young people, parents and primary carers, healthcare, social care, education, faith and youth group workers, sport and recreation, transport, and criminal justice - to gather opinions about the content of the curriculum that will be available on this e-learning portal.
We value and welcome the help we have recieved with this exciting project that will result in the provision of a free learning resource available to all.
If you would like any further information about this consultation please contact Sylvia Lamb: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are currently recruiting support workers: for more information see here.

We can provide single expert reports, but most of our assessments are undertaken by small multidisciplinary teams, who produce a single report with clear shared conclusions.
If the child or young person is a suspect or defendant in a criminal case you can contact us directly for an intermediary. The courts have powers to appoint and fund intermediaries for vulnerable defendants in the interests of a fair trial. The police have discretion to fund intermediaries for suspect interviews.
Triangle supports children and young people to express their views about the things that matter to them.
Triangle provides a unique and flexible range of services for children and young people up to age 19 who present with sexually concerning behaviours (SCB).
We provide training across the UK led by experienced trainers who are in direct practice with children. We also undertake research independently and in collaboration with others.
