Developed in partnership with
Health Promotion Game Collection
It is important that people with learning disabilities have the opportunity to learn about staying healthy and looking after themselves. The games in the Learning Disability Health Promotion Collection promote interaction and discussion around key areas of health, giving people with learning disabilities the chance to take more responsibility for their health.
These games were developed by Learning Disability leads at Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust and Berkshire Healthcare Trust. Each game offers a memorable and engaging opportunity to discuss aspects of health and personal safety, providing important messages about health in a simple and understandable way. The games prompt conversations between the group and empower players to make choices and decisions about their health and wellbeing, based on discussions during the game.
