Disability and Sexual Expression Training

Imagine planning your sex life around the days a specific carer –the most approachable one– is working? This is a perfect example of the types of barriers disabled people face with their sexuality. We want to change this. 


Want to learn more about disability and sexuality? Then we have the course for you!

Our virtual sexual expression training provides an insight to disabled intimacy and sexuality. It is delivered by disabled trainers who have an understanding and experience of supporting disabled people with their sexual needs.

The 3 and a half hour course provides an introduction to disability awareness as well as examining barriers that exist for disabled people. Specifically in the sphere of sex and disability, including how these barriers can be removed.

This blog post gives an insight into what a disabled person may be experiencing and feeling with their intimate relationships. Including how carers and PA’s can help.

It was good to think about different communication styles with different types of patients.  It was particularly useful to have discussions around how to have conversations around sexual health with patients and the governance behind this.  Jennie was a passionate advocate for this subject and I feel that I could approach her or the team for any further queries I might have in this area’  Emily Phillips
