Learning Disabilities Services
Our approach is to be person-centred and to put the people we support at the heart of everything we do
We provide care and support to adults who have learning disabilities and associated complex needs, such as communication difficulties, autism, epilepsy and physical disabilities. Our person-centered approach focuses on helping you to reach your fullest potential and develop your independence.
We offer a much more flexible service than traditional services. Whether you would like us to support you in your own accommodation, your family home or a supported living service, our support is tailored to your needs. We can provide assistance for a few hours a week, 24 hours a day, or anything in between.
To develop your support plan, we'll work closely with you and, where appropriate, your family, friends, advocates and other professionals. The result is an outcomes-focused plan that reflects your wishes, needs and aspirations. We regularly review your support plan with you, your family and relevant healthcare professionals to ensure we're giving you the right level of support to reach your personal goals. To ensure you receive all the support available to you, we work in partnership with social services learning disability teams, community health teams, housing providers, and other community organisations.
Central to our aim of helping people with learning disabilities to live as independently as possible is our belief in the power of activity to improve health, happiness and wellbeing. We explore each person’s capabilities and identify the daily tasks that they could do for themselves so they can stay active in a way that suits them. We empower them to do as much as they can themselves, so that they develop the skills they need to live the life they want, and receive support and assistance only when it’s required. We help people understand what they need to know to do the activities they want to while staying safe.
