BCH Adaptations Team nationally recognised for innovation!
We’re pleased to announce that our Adaptations Team has been highly commended in the Home Improvement Agencies (HIA) Awards held recently in July. The national awards are held each year to recognise and celebrate pioneers in housing support and home adaptations across the country.
The team were presented with their award for innovation at a special ceremony held at the House of Lords in recognition of their partnership work with NHS Occupational Therapy. The 18 month Major Adaptations Assessment scheme pilot has been fundamental in reducing waiting times as well as helping the team to be better placed to meet customers needs. The scheme has now been fully implemented with an Occupational Therapist employed in-house to provide a dedicated point of access for customers throughout the process.
