Care Accommodation – Focus Group Sessions

We are currently promoting a questionnaire for people to share thoughts and feedback with Wiltshire Council about Care Accommodation across the county for people who can’t live unsupported at home. This is about accommodation needs, whether that’s because of a learning or physical disability, a mental or physical health need, or due to age.


What do you think about what is available right now?
What is important to you in Care Accommodation?

To facilitate a constructive discussion and give parent carers an opportunity to discuss this issue in more detail, we have arranged two focus group sessions. The sessions will take place as follows:-

Tea and coffee will be provided at the sessions, and parent carers will be able to claim travel expenses, parking and any childcare costs incurred in attending these sessions.

We apologise for the very short notice of these sessions but we have only very recently been contacted about this piece of work. We sincerely hope you can join us at one these sessions to contribute to this important discussion.

To book your place, please complete the [ONLINE BOOKING FORM], or alternatively please telephone us on 01225 764647 to book a place with us over the phone. Bookings will close at 5pm on Sunday 18th November 2018.

If there is limited take-up for these sessions, a decision may be made to cancel one or both of the sessions, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Wiltshire Council will also be holding a focus group session in County Hall in Trowbridge on Monday 19th November from 10:30am-12:30pm for any carers and family members of customers of care within the county. This session will not be specifically for parent carers of young people/adults with SEND but you will still be welcome to attend. If you are interested in attending the session at Trowbridge County Hall, please click [here]. Refreshments will be provided but the WPCC will not be able to pay expenses. Please note that free parking is available at County Hall, space permitting.
