Some of our directors, trustees and staff have family members with disabilities so we know you may have concerns about your relative leaving home or changing their support.
At Walsingham Support, families and friends are involved in many ways, depending on the preferences of the people we support, including:
- Reviewing support plans
- Attending medical appointments
- Supporting new skills
- Helping to recruit key staff
- Celebrating achievements
- Being up to date with issues.
We have regional family carer forums and also hold regular events to which families are invited.
We encourage people we support to entertain family and friends at home if they want as well as met elsewhere.
