The CBF’s Getting It Right project is a 3 year project funded by the National Lottery Community fund that aims to improve local support for children and adults with severe learning disabilities and their families. Year 2 of the project was focused on the Black Country, covering Walsall, Sandwell, Dudley and Wolverhampton.
The project included online Positive Behaviour Support workshops, as well as focus groups and a survey to gather the views of family carer on the available support and services. Then a stakeholder engagement event brought together family carers, learning disability professionals and third sectors organisations from across the Black Country. The aim of the event was to share the findings of the project so far, and work together to come up with actions to improve the services and support available.
The findings and outcomes of Getting It Right in the Black Country, including the logic model, family carer survey and the action plan, are now available here:
