Relationships and Sexual Wellbeing Toolkit

The Relationships & Sexual Wellbeing Toolkit has been developed by a multi-agency steering group, led by NHS Fife, to provide practical support for staff who are supporting adults with learning disabilities (including services from statutory, private or voluntary sectors).

The Toolkit includes a collection of relevant resources to aid the delivery of education, information and support on relationships and sexual health matters. The Toolkit contains three separate boxes of relevant, up-to-date resources focusing on:

  • Sexual Health & Wellbeing
  • Contraception
  • Family Planning
  • Health Screening
  • Relationships 
  • Education/Guidance teaching packs

The Toolkit can also signpost staff onto further support if required, such as training and other service provision.

The aim of the Toolkit is to enable staff to tailor information, education and support to people with learning disabilities in order to promote positive decision-making and ensure individuals can exercise their rights and responsibilities in regards to personal relationships and sexual wellbeing. The overall aim is to improve sexual health experiences and provide positive outcomes for adults with a learning disability within Fife.

The Toolkit is available on loan from:

Information and Resource Centre (IRC), Haig House, Cameron Hospital, Leven, Fife
