Tricky Friends

Tricky Friends" is a short animation developed to help people understand what good friendships are, when they might be harmful, and what they can do. It is important that people with learning disabilities and autism, those who have cognitive difficulties, and also children and young adults, have positive opportunities to make and maintain friendships.
Richmond and Wandsworth Safeguarding Adults Board (RWSAB) would like to help them do that, while also reducing the risk of harm and exploitation in groups who may be less able to recognise the intentions of others. RWSAB hope this animation is used as a way to help people think about the issues, to start those conversations, and keep safe while enjoying friendships.
