United Response, 2014

Over the last few years, United Response has supported a number of people with complex disabilities to make this move. Their Practice Development Team has drawn on these experiences, looking at what works and what doesn’t work to create this checklist. The resource brings together learning from staff, people supported by the organisation, family members and a range of professionals into a single detailed checklist.

Broken down into sequential steps, the checklist details the eight phases needed to successfully move someone back to their community. The checklist covers the development of partnership agreements between stakeholders with defined roles and responsibilities for before, during and after the move; service specification and service design; staff skills and knowledge; living environment and practice leadership.
