Hello. If I was to organise a day trip to the movies with a personal carer, what arrangements would i need to make regarding insurance? They would be travelling by suitable taxi, and i would make sure the cinema can cater for people with physical disability. Thank you

Hi Kimberly,
Your facility most likely has insurance to cover residents, staff and volunteers (personal carers). Written consent for community outings is usually obtained from residents on the first week of arrival. If they are unable to provide it, their relatives will. Check with your manager for the policies your facility has in place.

Hi does anyone have a consent form/indemnity form/medical form etc for clients to complete prior to day trips out. we run a befriending service for people in the community (so not residential) and wondered if anyone can share their forms. i would be eternally grateful!
thanks in advance
