New model for our External Day Opportunities for adults with Learning Disabilities, Mental Health and Autism. This has been co-designed with our residents, practitioners, providers and carers and includes both Building Based and Community Based provision with a focus on progression and independence.

Our strength-based model focuses on achieving improved outcomes for our residents through the prevention of their residents needs escalating, whilst supporting people to maximise their independence. The approach enables providers to work closely with individuals who are referred into their services and to create a bespoke offer for each individual through addresses what is important to them, while delivering services which the Council, providers and people themselves will be able to measure. The model aims to increase peoples independence by developing their life skills with access to employment and increasing social inclusion within their local community and supporting carers.

Key outcomes for these services include:

Ensuring quality of life for people with care and support needs
Delaying and reducing the need for care and support
Ensuring that people have a positive experience of care and support
Safeguarding adults whose circumstances make them vulnerable and protect them from avoidable harm.

The External Day Opportunities aims to offer a variety of exciting and interesting activities. This includes life skills such as self-care, cooking, budgeting and physical activities. Activities will help people with learning disabilities to build their confidence, within day centres and using local community and leisure facilities to promote health, independence and progression. People with learning disabilities will be supported with employment and volunteer skills, including interview and CV skills and travel training. This will enable them to gain paid employment, volunteering opportunities and working with local businesses. Providers will support our vulnerable residents and communities to reduce social isolation and maximise opportunities for community inclusion and wellbeing.
