2018 Identitywa Family and Carers survey sees consistent, positive results
Over 500 families were invited to contribute to the 2018 survey which invites them to share their experience of accessing Identitywa service and supports.
The annual initiative is aimed to identify the areas family and carers view as important, whether Identitywa is meeting their needs and those areas the organisation should focus on to continue delivering high-quality support.
“Whilst we do understand that there is always room for improvement, we have been delighted with the results and the increased participation by families and carers,” said Identitywa CEO, Marina Re.
“There are some pleasing results reflected in the survey, along with really valuable feedback on areas we need to focus on to better provide for the quality of the lives of the people we support.”
