Healthwatch Calls for Public Input on Supported Living Services in Leicester & Leicestershire

As part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring the quality and accessibility of healthcare services, Healthwatch Leicester and Healthwatch Leicestershire invite the public to share their experiences and opinions on Supported Living services.

Supported Living services enable adults with diverse conditions, circumstances and support requirements to maintain independence and actively engage in their communities. Healthwatch recognises the importance of these services in promoting individual well-being and social inclusion.

Through this initiative, we will gather valuable feedback from people who use supported living services, their families and caregivers. We would also like to hear from other stakeholders to better understand the strengths and challenges of supported Living services in Leicester and Leicestershire.

Harsha Kotecha, Chair of Healthwatch Leicester and Healthwatch Leicestershire, said

“We want to hear the voices of those who directly engage with supported living services. By sharing your experiences and perspectives, you can help to ensure that the service meets the needs of individuals and ensures equitable access to care. Feedback will help identify areas for improvement and inform future efforts to enhance the quality and effectiveness of these essential services.”

Healthwatch encourages individuals to share their feedback through various channels, including online surveys, face-to-face conversations and written submissions.

About Healthwatch

We are the independent champion for people who use health and social care services. We exist to ensure that people are at the heart of care. We listen to what people like about services, and what could be improved, and we share their views with those with the power to make change happen. We also help people find the information they need about services in their area.

We have the power to ensure that people’s voices are heard by the government and those running services. As well as seeking the public’s views ourselves, we also encourage services to involve people in decisions that affect them. Our sole purpose is to help make care better for people.
