DHSC pay special visit to our services in Leeds
Community Integrated Care was delighted to welcome visitors from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) on Friday, alongside representatives from the National Care Forum (NCF), to two of our charity’s Supported Living Services in Leeds, to share our teams’ achievements in supporting people to live the best lives possible.
People we support from Jackson Avenue and Street Lane were proud to provide a tour of their homes and come together with our colleagues and the special guests to enjoy a festive buffet. Visitors were able to learn more about how our supported living services empower people to live with choice and independence within their local community.
Community Integrated Care’s Chief Executive Officer, Jim Kane, was pleased to attend, alongside the charity’s Managing Director for the North East, Marc Brodie and National Care Forum Policy Director, Liz Jones.
Speaking of the visit, Jim said, “We were delighted to welcome representatives from the Department of Health and Social Care and the National Care Forum to celebrate the life-changing outcomes of these exemplary services. Visits like this are hugely important, not only to spotlight the achievements of the people we support and our colleagues, but also to build connections across the sector and showcase best practice in social care. It was a privilege to be welcomed into the homes of the people we support in Leeds and to learn first-hand about the person-centred support they receive, enabling them to enjoy their biggest passions and aspirations in life.”
Marc Brodie said, “We’re really proud of the incredible outcomes our dedicated teams have accomplished alongside the people we support at Street Lane and Jackson Avenue. The people we support were really excited to welcome our partners for a festive celebration and talk about their achievements – from Kirsty volunteering at local cultural events, to Damien exploring his passion for DJing. We’d like to say a huge thank you to the DHSC and NCF for taking the time to visit and we hope to enjoy more visits like this in the future.”
