WELCOME

Welcome Welcome to LCiL’s third Choice Unlimited Directory which follows the event held at the Tigers Stadium Leicester on the 9th of April. Choice Unlimited as an event has begun to be recognised in many areas of the Country by disabled people and disabled people’s organisations as a mechanism that truly delivers assured choice in these very difficult times. I hope for those of you who attended the day, it went a long way to answering the many questions you may have regarding your own future care needs or that of a loved one or friend. As always we have endeavoured to work in partnership with many organisations to offer the widest remit possible on the day but also within this directory. For the more observant of you reading this, you may have noticed that the document has changed its name from Event Guide to Directory. This was as a result of the feedback we have received from many of you here in Leicester and Leicestershire who said that whilst the event is a great day and delivers so much, something like a directory to take away from the event would be useful when looking for services and products. The directory will be available online and hard copies will be circulated throughout the city and county to ensure anyone unable to attend Choice Unlimited can still take full advantage of the information provided. I would like to take this opportunity to thank staff at Leicester City Council who have handed these out in their “bucket loads” over the last year and we hope that this great work will continue with this new directory. In closing, I hope you see Choice Unlimited as a portal to the delivery of your needs, may that be social, employment, education, employment or health. I wish you all the best in 2014. Stephen Cooper CEO LCiL

VETERANS MENTAL HEALTH

Ten new dedicated veterans mental health teams treating thousands of veterans a year Ten new dedicated ‘veterans mental health teams’ have spent the last three years helping ex-Armed Forces personnel get mental healthcare quickly and easily. The NHS-funded teams, set up in 2010, see around 3,500 people a year and make sure veterans (including Reservists when not mobilised) and their families get the right treatment - be that from a GP, hospital, mental health service or other charities. The ten teams are sited all over the country and include a range of health workers such as full time doctors, nurses, psychiatrists and family relations professionals. They take self-referrals from veterans who are welcomed, assessed and work to develop a relevant treatment plan. NHS England took over the running of health services for the armed forces last April and has been working with partners such as the MOD, charities and the Department of Health, to improve services available for veterans as well as raising awareness of veteran mental health problems within the health and ex-military communities. With the development of this National Veterans Mental Health Network, more mental health professionals within the NHS who understand the nature of service life are now able to support veterans in accessing the care and support they need. Kate Davies OBE, NHS England’s Head of Public Health, Armed Forces and their Families and Health & Justice, said: “NHS England welcomes the opportunity to ensure no exserviceman or woman is disadvantaged and we continue to develop veteran-specific services.”

“This is part of our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant. We are here, we are listening and we are working hard to improve these services; we want to help people access them as easily as possible – the right service in the right place at the right time.” Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have similar schemes set up to enhance access to mental health services, including funding for community outreach services. To access your local service visit NHS Choices. Veterans who have had mental health issues post-service are also able to get support through the Veterans and Reserves Mental Health Programme (VRMHP) based in Nottinghamshire (DCMH Chetwynd Barracks, Chilwell, Nottingham, NG9 5HA Helpline: 0800 0326258 - Email: aphcsedcmhchl-vrmhp@ mod.uk). This MOD service provides mental health assessments for those veterans and reservists deployed since 1982. There are other access points available such as the Combat Stress National Telephone Helpline - 0800 138 1619. The free Veterans Mental Health App (search apple or android store for this title) includes help and guidance on key mental health conditions and also features videos of veterans telling their own stories about their mental health problems and journeys to recovery, also the Big White Wall to “talk and share” online, www.bigwhitewall.com 5

SMART HOUSE

Leicester City Council bring the Hft Smart House to Leicester Leicester City Council is working with Hft to showcase the benefits of personalised technology using the Smart House as part of the Choice Unlimited Event. The Hft Smart House shows how technology can be used to support people at home and support them to be more independent and safe. The Smart House is full of gadgets that you can try out to see if they could be beneficial to you and there will be experts on hand to give advice. What is the Hft Smart House? Technology is part of everyone’s life. More and more, it is used to support people to be independent and safe in and out of their home. Personalised technology promotes greater independence by enabling people to perform tasks that they were formerly unable to do, or had great difficulty doing, by providing enhancements to, or changing methods of interacting with their surroundings. The Hft Smart House shows how technology can be used to support you at home. It is full of gadgets that you can try out to see if they could be beneficial to you. Some of the gadgets can only be bought from specialist suppliers, but many of them are available from high street stores. All the equipment on show in the house is available for people to use in their own homes.

For more information about the technology in the Smart House, or if you have any questions, please contact the Hft Personalised Technology Team: Tel: 0117 244 1890 or email us at: personalisedtechnology@hft.org.uk

For more information on personalised technology visit www.hftsmarthouse.org.uk To buy some of the products you have seen in the Hft Smart House, visit www.hfttechnologyshop.org.uk

We would also welcome your comments on how useful you found visiting the Hft Smart House, did you think the gadgets were interesting, was there anything that you would use, or was there anything that you think was missing and that would have been useful for people to see? Hft is a leading national charity that supports adults with learning disabilities. Every day our creative thinking helps even those with complex needs to get the most out of life. Our person centred active support approach and our use of personalised technology helps each individual to live more independently and safely. 7
