The Hamlet is committed to raising standards and quality of care for children and young adults with disabilities and complex health needs.

We offer a range of courses for both professionals and parents and carers, which can be specially adapted to suit your needs.

Our training team consists of highly experienced and well qualified trainers who are also practitioners working within disability on a daily basis. The trainers have experience of working with children and adults at our centres and have in depth knowledge and direct experience of the needs of a range of disabilities and complex health issues.

We are currently running Signalong training courses throughout the year which include Signalong Foundation Courses for professionals as well as workshops and courses for parents and carers.

For professionals working with children and adults with disabilities and complex health needs we run moving and handling courses for professionals to support you with the work that you do.

For those working in Early Years settings we run practical sensory play courses to help you support the needs of children with disabilities and complex health needs.

We also offer disability awareness courses for practitioners working with children and adults with disabilities.
