New: LDT London 2019 Supported Living Zone workshops announced!

Building Futures – Moving to Supported Living

This workshop will be run by Halow Project where young people and staff will talk about working towards independence and supported living.

Building Futures is an exciting and innovative full-time community-based learning programme that nurtures the independence, enriches the lives, continues the education, and builds the futures of Halow ’s young people.

The young people will discuss:

  • How person-centred short- and long-term goals in the community can build
    someone’s independence in readiness for supported living; and how doing
    this in conjunction with the local authority can reduce packages over time.

  • Visiting supporting living environments as part of the programme, for a genuine experience of what it would be like.

  • Difficulties in the current economic climate of meeting young people’s
    desires to move into supported living… as a transitional programme, Halow Project are skilling people up and building their independence, only for the funding
    system to let them down.

Using Technology to Support Independence and Build Communities

Join Advance Housing to learn more about the work they have been doing independently and with others to make the best use of technology to support their customers and provide the best quality support and housing services to people with a learning disability and/or mental health condition.

Advance Housing will give you an overview of their approach to ensuring technology solutions are driven by individual customer needs – and demonstrate how they are building technology into the homes they provide to their customers. They will also show how the team have been using technical equipment to support group and local community activities which are helping customers get out and about and grow their confidence and independence while making new friends and having new experiences.

Please do drop in to talk to the Advance Housing team, hear about their work and share your ideas.
