IMHA Survey Report
At the start of the project we ran a survey to provide a snapshot of the support needs of the IMHA sector. The survey asked respondents to detail the areas of IMHA practice that needed urgent clarification, the training and resources which they felt would be most beneficial, their views on the IMHA component of the Independent Advocacy Qualification and asked for feedback on areas of IMHA practice and delivery. Responses were received from just under half the IMHA providers in England and identified a number of common areas of concern and resource need.

IMHA Regional Forums
The IMHA Support Project is funded to provide regional forums for all IMHA organisations across the country.

These forums will offer you the opportunity to network with colleagues, share your experiences and get some new ideas around different aspects of IMHA practice and delivery.
