The service is able to support individuals from the age of 17 as part of a transitional model of support we promote at Regard.
Best New Service – Connexions
Reason for nomination:
Everyone living at Connexion Street has very complex support needs and traditionally, would have been unlikely to be considered for a supported living service.
Kerry and her team worked collaboratively with the local Cornwall team and resolution was found by way of all placements being set up with Individual Budgets. This was a first for Cornwall when funding support for very complex individuals, but between them and the Regard Team, it has been demonstrated that the model can work for all individuals, irrespective of their needs.
