We visited people with housing needs, who are supported by the charity Launhpad Reading, as part of a ‘Seldom Heard’ project to ensure people have a say over local services.
People who have experienced homelessness told us they wanted:
- More time with healthcare professionals to hear their needs
- Better coordination between health and care professionals
- To be treated as experts on their own lives
Launchpad Reading told us people needed timely mental health support, quick help with safeguarding issues and prevention plans to stop crises.
