More about the event
All Wales Forum and partners are exploring the Respitality Model and other forms of alternative respite and short breaks in Powys for the benefit of learning disability family carers.
Respitality is a new model of respite that moves away from more traditional settings and looks at connecting carers to organisations within hospitality, tourism and leisure sectors for flexible alternative offers of short breaks and respite.
The All Wales Forum and partners have committed to co-designing this model in Powys for the benefit of learning disability family carers, and we would like to start a conversation with attendees about what are the practical steps we could all take to start co-designing this model in the region and other areas of Wales.
During this event, you will be introduced to Respitality and how it works. You will find out how Scotland have created a social franchise and put this model of respite into practice and you will be given an update on a review of how respite is currently working in Wales. We will spend some time in smaller groups to explore your thoughts on this model and what would be needed for this to be successful for you and your family.
