Find out why rehabilitation should be available to everyone
Rehabilitation makes people’s lives better, yet many of those who could most benefit face barriers to accessing these services. Expanding provision of good quality, community based, rehabilitation is now widely recognized as having a key role to play in addressing this
Meeting the rehabilitation challenge
There are strong economic, ethical and ‘quality of life’ reasons to improve access to rehab services, and it's time to make the UK health and care systems more rehabilitative as a whole.
We aim to build an alliance of national organisations committed to lobbying to improve access to quality rehab services across the UK.
Improving healthcare delivery through community rehabilitation
It's now widely recognised that rehabilitation works and that to improve access to these services they need to be more community based. This is supported by policy commitments across the UK.
The challenge ahead is to translate this into an expansion of quality community rehab services and investment to make this happen.
Setting the standard for community rehabilitation
Our aim is to drive up the quality of community rehab services.
We'll do this through promoting approaches and initiatives that work and developing new evidence-based standards.
Principles of quality rehabilitation systems
The factors that make for effective rehabilitation are now well understood. We have categorized them under three headings: person centred, accessible and integrated.
