Working in partnership to help shape care and support

October 17, 2017

Working in partnership to help shape care and support for people with learning disabilities and complex needs, Consensus design and create innovative services and bespoke settings for changing expectations and improving outcomes.

We work closely with commissioners and families to respond to the Transforming Care Agenda and local needs;  adapting, remodelling and re-investing in services and are proud to help stimulate and be a part of the on-going debate around the future of Adult Social Care and the Learning Disability Agenda.

We were present at The National Children and Adult Services Conference 2017, which opened on Wednesday 11 October in Bournemouth with speeches from LGA Chairman, Lord Gary Porter, ADCS President, Alison Michalska and ADASS President, Margaret Wilcox.

Throughout the duration of the conference we hosted a stand where colleagues discussed our innovations with delegates in learning disability provision such as; seamless transitional services for children and young adults (14-25), community based residential and supported living for people with additional forensic needs and adaptable, bespoke alternatives to NHS Assessment and Treatment units for people with complex, challenging needs.

With our aim of focussing on what’s right for the individual – not on labels or care models we shared our collective experience, learning and best practice including our successes and challenges in order to challenge and shape the future. We invited delegates visiting our stand to participate in a short one minute survey seeking feedback and insight on future challenges of care and look forward to sharing the key points with you in the next few weeks.

Thank you to those who met with us, and or participated in our survey and congratulations to ADCS on what has been, yet again, another enjoyable NCAS conference. We hope to see you all again next year for plenty more interesting discussion and debate.
