Bild chosen to deliver national Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training Trial
Bild has been chosen by Health Education England as one of the partners to deliver the Oliver McGowan Mandatory Learning Disability and Autism Training trial.
Bild will be leading a coalition of organisations, including Building Bridges Training, to co-design and co-deliver training for the 12-month trial, which is aimed at health and social care staff who support people with learning disabilities and autistic people.
The training is named after Oliver McGowan, a young autistic man who died after being given anti-psychotic medication in hospital. His death highlighted the need for health and social care staff to have better access to training that offers greater understanding of these conditions. His mother Paula McGowan led a campaign for more training.
Bild will lead a coalition of 15 organisations, which includes social care providers, public authorities, experts by experience, academics and regulators.
