Choice Support self-advocate Shalim Ali is helping train student nurses at London South Bank University (LSBU). Shalim, who we support and who also works for us as a quality checker, talks about transition in an LSBU video for a new online course for learning disability student nurses.

Dr. Thomas Doukas, Choice Support's Head of Inclusive Research & Involvement says "by taking on learning disability student nurse placements we have over many years made good connections with the Faculty of Health and Social Care and Senior Lecturer Marian Jennings. Our involvement team's work with self-advocates has become known to LSBU. Marian, together with other lecturers, regularly prompt self-advocates from our team to speak to the LSBU students. Over the last two years, we’ve done a series of sessions with their students."

"We've been keen to collaborate with LSBU to create this video. It helps explain to student nurses about Choice Support's work and how people with disabilities want to and can be involved."
