Calderdale Cares Partnership Draft Involvement and Inclusion Principles

With our commitment in mind, draft involvement and inclusion principles have been developed and are the foundation by which local people and our communities can expect to be involved by organisations in Calderdale. These principles will be at the heart of our activities and will act as a method of ensuring all partners are working in a consistent manner.

We need to test them with people, communities and colleagues, ensuring they are fit for purpose. We are currently engaging on the draft involvement and inclusion principles above.

For more information please see link Involvement and inclusion principles – Calderdale Cares Partnership

We value your feedback, please tell us what you think by Friday 16 February 2024.

West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership highlights reasonable adjustments for people with disabilities :: West Yorkshire Health & Care Partnership (wypartnership.co.uk).

Reasonable Adjustments are a legal requirement under the Equality Act 2010 to make sure that public sector health services are accessible to all disabled people. Following a successful national trial, NHS organisations across West Yorkshire are now making preparations to place a new alert flag on the health records of people with disabilities, including learning disabilities, that will make it easier for health and care workers to make Reasonable Adjustments for them. The flag is to be implemented by 31 March 2024.

West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership has worked with people with learning disabilities to produce a short film explaining why Reasonable Adjustments are important for their care and for other people with learning disabilities to know that they can ask for Reasonable Adjustments to be made.
