Julie Smith, Gettalife co-Director, Millie Rowland, Shared Lives carer, and David Abbey, together with parent carer Karen McKay, My Safe Home, shared inspiring success stories which offer alternatives to traditional residential care settings and supported living. Demonstrating how ‘small support’ as a movement and ethos enable personalisation, continuity, and longevity of care.
Our panellist, Joe Powell, explained how important it was for local communities to get involved in planning decisions in their area to shape housing development of inclusively designed housing, including accessible and adapted homes.
