Reach Review

Reach Review

The Worcestershire Comprehensive Reach Review is a peer review programme, where services for the learning disabled are reviewed from the perspective of the service users themselves.

A team of trained service users are now out there - Doing It For Themselves!

This is a national pilot programme being run by the Learning Disability Service at Worcestershire County Council in association with Paradigm.

Reach Review Information

The Learning Disability Service and Supporting People want to know if people using supported living services are:

  • Getting good support
  • Like where they are living
  • Like who they live with
  • Enjoying their lives

We are checking supported living in Worcestershire - this is called a Reach Review.

We will be using 11 standards called Reach Standards.

We want you to help us with the review. We need help from:

  • People who use support services
  • Friends and relatives of people who use support services
  • People who provide support services
  • Other people involved in the lives of people who use support services

You can help by:

Talking to the review team
Two of the REACH team  will meet with you and ask you simple questions about what you think about where you live. You can choose the time and place that they come to, and your support worker can be there if you want them.

All learning disabled services commissioned by Worcestershire County Council will now need to be REACH compliant.
