Camphill Families and Friends have published a “Handover Guide” for family members or friends who take on the role of supporters of people with learning disabilities who live in Camphill communities in England and Wales.  There are many aspects to this role and not all will be relevant to you. You might be very familiar with some of them, but others may be new, especially if parents have not shared the responsibility beforehand.
