In August 2014, a partnership between NHS Highland, the Highland Council and Lochaber Housing Association, with Lochaber Care & Repair as Lead Agency, made a successful submission to become a demonstration site for the Scottish Government’s Adapting for Change (AFC) programme. The Scottish Government’s overall aim is “to develop and test key aspects of the approach recommended by the AFC working group to inform a revision of the national policy framework for housing adaptations and to provide learning to improve practice”.

What is Be@Home

Be@home is a one stop shop offering any person, across all tenures, a seamless pathway to a range of practical services that can help them live at home independently, safely and with confidence.  The model will seek to integrate a range of services which will increase customer choice, help avoid crisis or more costly future interventions and seek to integrate with existing services. It is about improving the person’s experience in ensuring that people are given choices and that they are at the heart of the decision making process.
