Enabled City has worked with Local Government Association to create seven films about the Transforming Care Programme. The films show how Transforming Care improves peoples lives.
Transforming Care is all about improving the lives of people with learning disability and/or autism who display behaviours that are described as challenging. We know that when people are empowered to live the way they chose and are involved in planning their support and care they have better lives.
The Local Government Association leads the empowerment workstream for the Transforming Care Programme. To support the workstream the LGA has set up an empowerment steering group to oversee the work.
Members of the empowerment steering group are all experts by experience. They all have experience of long stays in hospital, or have family members with experience.
Members of the group are now living good lives in the community and have worked together to develop a film about what being empowered means to them.
