Recommendation ID

Supporting family members, carers and staff:- What types of services or approaches are effective in supporting family members, carers and staffto be resilient and able to provide care and support to people with a learning disability and behaviour that challenges?

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

Why this is important:- Enabling family members, carers and staff to provide continuing care and support can help prevent placements from breaking down, which can lead to out-of-area placements. Investment in carers, support networks, initiatives that support independent living, and community networks are key to
helping people develop greater resilience. This is especially important if new approaches to service
delivery, such as personalisation, are to succeed. However, there is no direct empirical evidence of the social and economic benefits associated with investment in such approaches and services.
