Training & Events

Support Collective

The Support Collective at Project Art Works offers a broad range of training and events in collaboration with trusted contacts and partners. Thanks to our funders we can offer these learning opportunities free of charge to caregivers and personal assistants (employed via a personal budget).

This year we ran courses on Understanding stress and anxiety in autism, Sensory Considerations, Makaton, PDA, supporting challenging behaviour, amongst many other courses.
