It is re­gret­table that Nor­wood’s con­sul­ta­tion process is lim­ited to gather­ing views on how to en­sure that Ravenswood “con­tin­ues to be a pleas­ant place to live and work” ( JC Au­gust 12).

A gen­uine con­sul­ta­tion would also seek the views of res­i­dents on whether they wish to con­tinue liv­ing in an in­sti­tu­tion or whether they would like the op­por­tu­nity of liv­ing in or­di­nary hous­ing, sup­ported liv­ing or small res­i­den­tial homes sit­u­ated within the wider com­mu­nity.

Af­ter all, the dis­abil­i­ties of many of the peo­ple liv­ing in Ravenswood are no dif­fer­ent to those of the Nor­wood ser­vice users who have been sup­ported to work as a pro­fes­sional team at the Hatch End car valet­ing pro­ject. David Shine­gold Spencers Wood, Read­ing
