Engaging with LD clients in supported living schemes
We were approached by the local authority to undertake this work. The support delivered in a number of supported living homes was outsourced by the council in 2018 to a private provider. This work will enable us to speak with the residents and find out how they are supported in their home.
Visits to the supported housing schemes took place in February and March 2019. We met with the residents and spoke with them to see what they thought about the changes, if anything, and also enabled family/friends of the residents to let us know their thoughts.
Although this work started in 2018/19, it continued into the workplan for this year. We are currently finalising work on our findings and will submit a report to the commissioner with any feedback and recommendations.
