Learning disabilities and behaviour that challenges: service design and delivery: Draft guidance consultation

NICE has written some guidance about how services should work for
people with a learning disability and behaviour that challenges.

They want to know what you think about it.

The draft guidance has quite a lot to say about residential
placements for both children and adults. It appears to suggest that care
homes are a last resort to be avoided

The Forum asks should the
draft guidance be more positive about the choices that residential and
supported living can offer? What would you like it say about the purpose
of care homes, housing with support, shared lives and live in support?
What would be helpful to the providers and registered managers of these
residential options and their workforce?

Submit a post and/or respond to the consultation.

Short version of draft guideline

The consultation closes on Monday 20 November 2017 at 5pm.
