NB: Please do not try and source any materials in braille etc or go to any expense like this at the moment. There are resources on our website where you can start to download brochures if you need them, and more resources will become available nationally in time. We understand that this work we have done on AIS is ahead of the national picture so lots of resources that are promised, are yet to have been published

We welcome any feedback from you and your staff when you have run any of our Lunch and Learn training resources.
