Description:
In June 2003, The National Home Sharing and Short Breaks Network (NHSN) was launched by the Minister of State in the Department of Health and Children. It was established with a view to service providers adopting a more collaborative approach in the areas of host family respite care and home sharing. The Network has representatives from various service provider organisations throughout the country and aims to a) promote uniformity and high standards amongst organisations throughout Ireland that offer host family services, b) promote the development of good practice in the field of host family based services both short and long term and c) assist those who offer support in their homes to people with disabilities. In 2010 the (NHSN) made representations to the Junior Minister for Health with regard to the placement of people with disabilities in an alternative family settings for respite or shared/full time care. The Network requested, through the Minister’s office, that issues of tax exemption for some host families be addressed and that common national standards be put in place. Following these representations, a working group was established by the National Director, Integrated Services Directorate, HSE, to undertake an overview of models of respite and residential care with host families in community settings, nationally, and to determine the viability of these models of service delivery for future development for people with an intellectual disability. The working group comprised representatives from the HSE, the NHSN and the Department of Health.
