To support the national programme to transform care for people with a learning, disability, autism or both, NHS England and its partners have commissioned an evaluation of the programme. This is being carried out by The Strategy Unit, ICF (a health research and consultancy company); the British Institute for Learning Disabilities (BILD) and the University of Birmingham.
The main aim of the evaluation is to learn about how effectively local areas are delivering the ambitions set out in Building the Right Support (BRS), to understand how we can improve quality and outcomes. Your feedback will play a valuable and vital role as the evaluation is particularly keen to identify and share good practice in order to drive the change that’s needed.
An important early part of this evaluation is a national survey of the 48 Transforming Care Partnerships (TCPs). We are inviting people and organisations who have been involved in any aspect of work in their local TCP to take part. We want to hear from everyone who has a view of any or all of this work including:
- people with a learning disability, autism or both, their family members and carers
- experts by experience
- TCP SROs and leaders
- directors of adult social services and children’s services
- all professionals, clinicians and staff involved in improving the quality of care and support – whether in health, social care, housing or education
- commissioners and providers of care and support
The survey will take 15-20 minutes. Views are welcomed from everyone, so please forward the survey to your wider contacts and networks.
