How were future service users consulted?

We spoke to people who use our learning disability services in Totnes as well as their families, and with staff. We let them know of our concerns about them providing high quality services from our current environment, and asked for their views and thoughts about options for the future. Service users who were able to comment and their families told us they were pleased with the option to redevelop Rushbrook and have a dedicated single service in Totnes.

We have developed a number of similar centres across Devon for use by young people and used this experience to inform the use of the Rushbrook Centre in Totnes and listened to young people about which activities and services they would like there.
