Housing and Support Alliance seeks family carers to complete survey on children and housing

surveyThe following is reproduced from the H&SA website, and is also in emails which H&SA has sent to possibly interested parties. The answers H&SA receives in these surveys will influence what is subsequently published in NHS-endorsed guides and videos. Please consider completing the online survey for families…

 

 

Guides on housing solutions for children with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour

Call to housing, health and social care professionals and families of children with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour

The Housing and Support Alliance (H&SA) has been funded by NHS England to write a guide for families on how they can change their environment or housing situation to better meet the needs of their child with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour.  H&SA is also writing a guide and producing a training video for housing, health and social care organisations so that they can better help families get the housing they need.

We want to make sure that the guide and videos are as useful as possible to families and professionals, so we are asking for your help to tell us about the areas in which you most need advice, support and information when it comes to getting the right housing.

H&SA therefore needs …….

From families:

  • Families to tell us about their experience of getting the housing their children with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour need. Please complete survey1 to help us!
  • Examples of where families have managed to get a good housing solution that makes life better for the disabled child and their family. H&SA would like contact with families that are willing to tell their story and/or be part of a film. Please complete survey1 to help us!

From family networks:

  • Contact details from family networks that H&SA can meet with during February 2016. The aim is to hold focus groups to talk about what networks need, as well as what works and what doesn’t work. Please email kate.newrick@housingandsupport.org.uk and let us know you can help

From housing, health and social care professionals:

  • Information from housing, health and social care professionals that work with children with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour (and their families) on housing issues. Please complete survey2 to help us!
  • Details from housing, health and social care professionals that work with children with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour (and their families) on housing issues, that are willing to share examples of what works and what doesn’t work for the guide and/or training film. Please complete survey2 to help us! 

We are grateful for any help you give us with this. For further information please contact kate.newrick@housingandsupport.org.uk
