Call for Case Studies – Enablement

Have you done a really good piece of enablement work with a service user recently?

Have you implemented some excellent training on supporting people to regain and retain skills which enable them to keep themselves safe at home for longer?

Have you helped someone feel more confident in looking after themselves and getting about in day to day tasks?

We’re keen to hear your stories and case studies about the excellent enablement work you’re doing everyday with your home support clients.  We want to know more about the work you’re doing that you are proud of, and share your good practice with other providers and colleagues to show what home support can achieve.

Please send your examples (anonymised of course) to Bethany Small at integratedcommissioners@norfolk.gov.uk
