Essex County Council (ECC) are undertaking a programme of review of the existing residential provision for adults with disabilities, including learning disabilities, sensory impairments, and physical impairments.
This programme is intended to identify existing residential services with the potential to de-register to provide supported living services. It does also however offer the opportunity for residential provision to change specialisation or adapt the existing services to better fit with ECC's strategic direction. The process for de-registration has been agreed internally by ECC and offers providers the chance to work collaboratively with us to make changes to your services. Documents explaining the process, benefits, and differences between supported living services and residential services are included within this section to help you in considering whether this is the right move for your organisation at this time.
ECC welcome any enquiries or expression of interest from providers that would like to further explore the potential to de-register an existing AWD residential service to become supported living. Should you wish to express an interest or get any further clarification around the process itself please get in touch with us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
