Kisharon, Langdon and Norwood have launched a joint initiative to evaluate the Jewish community’s learning disability care offering.
The three largest Jewish organisations in the sector will work together to develop a joint strategy to facilitate the best possible provision of essential services for the Jewish community. The aim of this important collaboration is to create more opportunities and better outcomes for individuals with learning disabilities in the Jewish community.
Kisharon Chief Executive Richard Franklin said: “While each of our organisations has its own distinct ethos and caters to a different need in the community, what we all recognise is the importance of prioritising the people we support in their relationship with the services on offer. In committing to this ground-breaking co-operation between three of our community’s principal learning disability support services, we continue to put people with learning disabilities and their experience at the heart of our decision-making.”
Langdon Chief Executive Neil Taylor said: “Building on the positive relationships that exist between the organisations, this is an exciting opportunity for us to consider the potential impact that future collaboration will have on meeting the future needs of young people and adults in an increasingly challenging environment.”
Norwood Chief Executive Bev Jacobson said: “Individuals with learning disabilities have higher expectations for their lives than they did ten years ago. This has led to an increase in demand for our services at a time when there is less funding and a shortage of accommodation. We can solve this complex challenge far better together than we can each on our own.”
Kisharon, Langdon and Norwood welcome contributions from people with learning disabilities, their families and members of the wider community to its consultation on a joint strategy and is asking them to contact Cordis Bright at firstname.lastname@example.org should they wish to do so.
