The impact of reduced support
As a housing and support organisation for people with learning disabilities or mental health conditions, Advance is committed to providing high quality support that will enable our customers to live the lives they choose. However, in today’s financial climate, it is proving increasingly difficult to provide services that are customer-centred, deliver positive outcomes and which are also financially viable. In some areas of the country we have seen a reduction or total removal of support for people who really need it. The negative impact this has had on our customers with mental health conditions, has been highlighted by our own research.
