Following guidance published by CQC in May, it has come to HCPA’s attention that providers need further guidance in how to help the individuals they support with relationships, sexuality and intimacy, while taking into consideration the complexity of consent and capacity

HCPA has spoken to several providers who have stated that this is an area they lack knowledge on best approaches and cannot openly discuss as it is often considered taboo.

HCPA will be looking to create some education and resources to help with this topic. To support us in this we want to run a safe forum for you to tell us of your good and bad experiences with this topic. From this we will be able to understand the barriers providers face when dealing with these areas in both older people and adult disability services and form practical solutions that providers can use day to day.

If you would like to share your experiences, please attend our forum. We would ask that individuals who attend are prepared to share and listen in a safe and confidential space.
