Waltham Forest telecare scheme aims to provide pioneering support for autistic needs

Tunstall Group : 02 May, 2007  (New Product)
People with autism in Waltham Forest will be able to enjoy a more active role in the community thanks to a new supported living telecare scheme
This scheme has been specially designed for people with autism.

It has been developed in partnership by Waltham Forest Housing Association, Waltham Forest Council, support provider Adepta, Frankham Consultancy and Telecare specialist Tunstall.

The scheme was funded through a grant from the Housing Corporation.

The partners have involved those who will be living here from the start.

This scheme is exceptional in the way that the internal design features have been guided by each individual's needs and tastes, as well as safety features in addition to focusing on tailored support to meet individual specific needs.

The partners have all been closely involved in the planning and development of the scheme as a positive alternative to residential care.

Telecare technology will aid Adepta's specialist team providing on site support.

Iain Duncan Smith, the local MP said: 'This is a marvellous concept and everyone involved is to be congratulated for bringing it through to completion'.

'Autism is one of the undiscussed problems that face our community and this project will go a long way to help those affected by autism maintain their independence'.
