Introducing Avalink

Avalink is our strategic customer committee - made up of customers from each of our localities, the group meets every three months to discuss current issues, decide on upcoming policy changes and to ensure best practice is being adhered to across the North of England.

We encourage all of our customers to get involved in Avalink, whether that be becoming a panel member directly, or by discussing issues at a local level which can then be forwarded to the quaterly meeting for discussion at a higher level.

Avalink is all about inclusion; our people taking control of their lives and the way they are supported. 

Here are just a few examples of the difference Avalink has made to Avalon.

  • Choosing staff and assessing carers
  • Running training courses
  • Changing policies and procedures that affect customers
  • Writing articles for our newsletter and social media feeds
  • Advising on accessibility 

 

What Avalink members say:

"Avalink meetings are fun and we make good friends. It is also really good to be listened to and make decisions that make a difference."

"It is important to me to be the voice of Avalon's customers and to make sure Avalon does their best as a company to ensure customers get the best support."

Avalink are industry renowned

Avalink's presence has been felt not just within our organisation, but across the Social Care sector. In 2016 this resulted in Avalink being nominated, and subsequently being finalists for the 'Breaking Down Barriers' award, at the National Learning Disabilities and Autism Awards. This is something both Avalink and The Avalon Group as an organisation are hugely proud of, and goes to show just how huge an impact the group has on improving the lives of countless people.
