VODG survey seeks to learn more about sleep ins and overnight support  

VODG has today launched a survey to learn more about the issues facing its members in relation to sleep in payments and overnight support in general.

The first section of the survey seeks to gather views on issues to do with sleep in payments, ahead of the Supreme Court hearing of the Royal Mencap Society v Tomlinson-Blake appeal ruling on 12 and 13 February 2020.

Questions then focus on exploring members’ perspectives on overnight support more generally.

VODG member chief executives, including those from organisations not affected by the sleep in payments issues, are invited to give views by Tuesday 24 December by using the survey link emailed to them directly.

Responses will be treated confidentially and used to inform future VODG activities.
