ALD – Get Involved

ALD Hub Home Page

The Western Trust Adult Learning Disability Service is continuing with a process of developing an involvement mechanism for service users, carers, Trust staff and providers to shape and influence service delivery in the Western Trust Region.

PPI Model to aid the delivery of Adult Learning Disability Services in the Western Trust

Following the appointment of an interim PPI Advisory Group and a series of meetings and workshop events, a model has now been proposed and agreed for moving forward with this process. There is a ‘Hub and Spoke’ infrastructure with 5 local implementation groups working with a Strategic Involvement Group. The 5 Local Involvement Groups are in Limavady, Derry, Strabane, Omagh and Fermanagh as illustrated in the image.

The Strategic Involvement Group will be made up of representatives of the local hubs and this infrastructure also reflects 5 levels of involvement as per the following:

  • Level 1 Involved in agreeing support/care plan with Social Worker and your relative
  • Level 2 Involved in evaluating services
  • Level 3 Involvement in development of services
  • Level 4 Setting priorities and allocate resources for the future at service directorate level
  • Level 5 Commissioning and policy development at organisational or regional level

The interim PPI Advisory Group is working with Trust staff and the Public Health Agency (PHA) to help shape the model and is currently building firm foundations to ensure involvement is wide reaching and meaningful.
