We’re pleased to announce a new partnership with the Oxfordshire Family Support Network (OxFSN) which is an organisation run by and for family carers of people with learning disabilities.
Sue Turner, NDTI’s Learning Disability Lead said “We want to make sure that family carers are central to the work we do, so we are really pleased to have formed a partnership with the Oxfordshire Family Support Network. They do some fabulous work and we are a looking forward to working with them more closely in the future”.
Set up in 2007 by family carers who wanted to use their experience to help others in the same situation, OxFSN provide independent information, advice and support by families for families of people with learning disabilities and strongly believe that people with learning disabilities and their families should have the same life chances as everyone else.
A spokesperson from OxFSN added "We have already benefitted from the Care and Treatment Review training offered by NDTi and their support, expertise and knowledge when working to improve support to families who have relatives in Assessment and Treatment Units. We are passionate about inclusion of people with learning disabilities. We therefore feel honoured to be invited to have a partnership agreement with NDTi who have done so much ground-breaking work with people with learning disabilities and their families."
