Why accessible information is important for healthy relationships

CHANGE, a leading human rights organisation, says sex education is needed for everyone.

Sometimes a support worker has to go with me on dates which means I cannot have any privacy.
If I want to stay overnight with my partner, I have to give his care home many weeks notice.
We have relationships but often non-learning-disabled people, like our carers and support staff, stop us from making our own decisions about our relationships. In our care homes, we are asked questions and made to explain when and why we want to spend time alone with our friends or partners. It makes us feel embarrassed and cross.
