Greater security of tenure, more choice and control
For many years Golden Lane Housing has been helping support providers to go through the journey from a registered care home to supported living.
In 2013 the National Development Team for Inclusion partnered with Golden Lane Housing and Choice Support to improve housing rights and security of tenure for disabled and older people by developing the Feeling Settled Toolkit. This builds on Feeling Settled: a guide for those involved in changing a service from a residential care home to supported living where people stay in the same place, which was published in 2011.
Feeling Settled Report
The original Feeling Settled Report sets out the steps for changing registered accommodation and care into supported living for people with learning disabilities, offering a greater security of tenure, more choice and control over their funding but at the same time are settled and would prefer not to move. The Feeling Settled report was endorsed by the Care Quality Commission, the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services, the Valuing People Now Providers Forum and the Department of Health.
Feeling Settled Toolkit
The new Feeling Settled Toolkit provides readers with examples of good practice and valuable resources for each step of the person centred Individual Pathway proposed in the original report. The Individual Pathway is at the core to this Toolkit, emphasising it is essential that the person stays at the heart of the process throughout.
