Following an open call for submissions of local good practice in Summer 15, Care & Repair England has produced a series of Notebook style ‘cameo’ descriptions of local delivery. This initiative was backed by Public Health England and endorsed by the Home Adaptations Consortium .
An initial six examples were published in June 2015:
West of England Care & Repair
Walsall Independent Living Centre
Sunderland Care & Support
Suffolk Orbit Care & Repair
Middlesbrough Staying Put
Knowsley Centre for Independent Living
New models were added in September 2015 –
Promotion of wellbeing and independence, alongside prevention, are critical to the vision of the Care Act. Adapting people’s homes plays a pivotal role in meeting these obligations.
