Learning Disability Health & Care Passport

The North East & Cumbria Learning Disability Network have developed a Health and Care Passport. This is an editable PDF whereby families, carers and people can fill it in electronically. This will support people to keep it regularly up to date for it to be printed and used in a health and care setting, equally it can be printed off and handwritten on. They have changed the title from hospital passport to health and care passport as it can be used in multiple settings.

Substance misuse: through the lens of the family (Adfam, June 2022)

During Families Awareness Week, Adfam in collaboration with ten other organisations that support families launched 'Substance Misuse: Through The Lens of The Family'.

This report looks at how the government's Drug Strategy, released earlier this year, could adopt a more family-focused approach, and examines some of the different elements a drug strategy might include if considered through the lens of the family.
