Supported Living Tenders

ChAD were approached by D.M.B.C commissioners to produce a list of questions to ask the companies who were applying to run the supported living homes .

After discussion with the committee and people they represent they forwarded the questions , These questions were then asked  to the companies .

ChAD members were invited to the Civic Building to view power point presentations of what the companies policies and practices were answering the questions of both ChAD and the commissioners

The committee members then  marked the presentations on the content of how good or poor they felt it was. These scores were added when the commissioners gave their overall ratings of the content of what they required .All the presentations were anonymous so ChAD did not know what company they were marking .

At a later date Committee members were invited back to ask further questions to the companies who had scored highest who had to give a another  presentation .From these several companies will be awarded the contract .

 

ChAD were invited  back in September 2018 to go through the same process .

Sport for all

ChAD members enjoying a change from their usual serious topics and discussions.  Craig, Raymond and Stewart thoroughly enjoyed themselves at the Big Health event at the English Institute for Sport in Sheffield where there were interactive workshops and a variety of accessible sports to enable everyone to improve their health and well being – and having fun at the same time.

 

 

 

The Disability Emergency Covid Fund/National Emergencies Trust

This Funding Project has now finished.  We would again like to thank Net Funding for enabling us to produce the easy read booklets to reach the Learning Disability community.  ChAD members were also able to keep in touch by computer with each other and produce work for inclusion in the booklets and other projects.  The funding also gave members opportunities for socially distance meet ups during the pandemic.
