We aim to support carers, parents and families of people we support in our services but also to play a role in supporting carers groups and individuals across North Devon.
We hold regular meetings and support groups where we do offer advice and develop plans for working together on local and more national policy issues.
We recognise our responsibilities by distributing regular Updates on our services and include carers in our Organisational Excellence-Values and Behaviours Policy. This sets out the values we put into practice with our staff teams, the people we support and parents, families and carers. It forms a Code Of Practice for the person centred work that we do in working together.
To further assist this we have recently purchased Eye Gaze equipment and technology to enable people with profound disabilities and complex needs to communicate their choices.
We believe in the values of Co-Production and are currently producing a Carers Voice Toolkit.
