ALD – Get Involved
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.

Getting Involved in The Communications process & "How we Communicate"
Following requests for involvement, a ‘Communications Workgroup’ has been setup encompassing carers, local group representatives, Trust members and a Communications Manager to help guide the process. The group will look at all aspects of the communications processes which will prove to be beneficial for all carers and service users going forward. Work is already underway to develop the website and online resources and all feedback and ideas from the Involvement Workshops are welcome.

Pathfinder - Carers Group - Get Involved
Western Trust Chief Executive, Dr Anne Kilgallen, said: “We see Pathfinder as creating a whole new conversation about Health and Social Care in Fermanagh and West Tyrone. It means taking a detailed honest look at what we’re doing and whether we can do it better.”
