Transforming Care is the government’s national programme to improve services for people with learning disabilities and/or autism, who display behaviour that challenges. The aim is to make sure more people are living in the community, with the right support and close to home.
Yesterday we met Kim Arnold from Choice Support, who came to give us training so we can take part in Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspections as “experts by experience” – people who have direct experience of using health and social care services.
Members of My Life My Choice are currently serving on two different NICE Guideline Committees – People with learning disabilities and challenging behaviours: Guide for services and Care and support of older people with learning disabilities – alongside professionals, academics, and family carers. For the next 2 years we will be looking at evidence and answering questions about the two topics.
