Figment Arts Director David Parker worked with Team Springwell, Experts by Experience at Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust earlier this year.
Team Springwell are a group of people who have a learning disability and complex physical and mental health needs. They work with the Trust to improve services based on their lived experience.

We made a film to accompany their project: My Home My Choice, which raises awareness around the importance of home design for the wellbeing of people with a learning disability and shares ideas to facilitate as much choice and control as possible in their homes.

The My Home My Choice film is part of a tool kit that enables people with a learning disability, their families, carers and provider services to make those choices.


"I'm very excited and proud about the launch of this project by Team Springwell.It's essential for people's wellbeing to have choice in how their homes look and feel and sadly this is often not the case for people with a learning disability - this film aims to help change that."

Viki Baker - Clinical Director for Learning Disability Services at Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust


"People in hospital when they get out, it's important to be listened to about if they want their walls different colours. We might have a learning disability but we're all adults. It's our choice 'My Home My Choice' - make it into your room not anybody else's - that's what we did it for.
"Hope people will look at it (the film) and watch it and it will give them ideas about what they want their room to be like. Enjoy watching the film and hopefully it will help around Sussex."
