Why your views are needed
There are about 450 people receiving mental health support and housing in Suffolk in 250 placements. The contracts for this support are due to be renewed in 2017. The people who manage these contracts, called Commissioners, want to make sure that supported housing services develop and improve.
To make this happen they have asked Suffolk User Forum to run six workshops across the County. We have planned these workshops by working with a small steering group which has included service users who have lived in supported housing, who have received housing support, family carers and professionals involved in housing.
Together we have written a newsletter that explains what is happening. Please click on the link below;
We also have very short questionnaires that service users and family carers, friends, supporters or anyone with an interest can complete and return using our FREEPOST Address.
