The 200 Lives Project

26th April 18:00 to 19:00
Evaluating the quality and costs of supported living and residential care for adults with learning disabilities.

Chris is a Professor of Social Care in the Department of Social Care and Social Work, Faculty of Health and Education at Manchester Metropolitan University. He previously worked at the Hester Adrian Research Centre, University of Manchester, and at Lancaster University, and was previously Co-Director of the Public Health England Learning Disabilities Observatory.

This event is an opportunity to hear more about The 200 Lives Project. Our research question was: How do the quality and costs of services for adults with learning disabilities vary between supported living and residential care?

We gained information from adults with learning disabilities, family members, support staff and service managers to find out about what supported living and residential care services were like, how they worked, how much they cost, and what people living in these places thought about their lives. This project took place during COVID-19, with services under severe pressure and restrictions on visitors, so we changed our methods to collect information remotely.

Commissioners of supported living and residential care services need to pay attention to what individual people with learning disabilities want and respect the rights of people to grow and develop throughout their lives.

A range of resources from the project, including a full report, easy read report, 10 key messages from the project, and podcasts about the project, are available here

Remember these sessions are a good source of SWE CPD so you’re welcome to come and learn and develop with us.
