Neighbourhood Residential Living Network

The Residential Forum, Neighbourhood Residential Living Networks Project is about assisting people think through, with their families and neighbours, what matters to them in their lives. Specifically what support and care would benefit their neighbourhood and how they could contribute. Essentially it is a project about collective community forward planning for people’s accommodation and personal support needs at various times in life.

The network extends to London, Belfast and Cornwall. Please recognise these documents as “works in progress”. They are not the final views of the Residential Forum.  They are presented as a means for people to follow the work, to trigger thoughts and to get you to join in. Included are underdeveloped ideas and there is a lack of information on how some might be used to change the way social care is organised and funded. The Residential Forum does believe that Residential Care is a way to support people.  That is what defines Residential Care; not by concerns about who owns what or by favoured policies.  What matters is the way people want to live, where and with whom. For Residential Care to break out of the constraints imposed on it and support people in a way they prefer requires a clear, calm but substantial shift of thinking.  Our hope is that readers will contribute to developing the ideas and by coming up with new ones.
