Our approach to support
The service is supported by a quality assurance team including a specialist Learning Disability Advisor whose aim is to empower service users to take control of their lives, and where possible, work towards a level of independence which fits with their skills, confidence and aspirations
All individuals using our service have a person-centred plan which they help to create; it lists their goals and ambitions, as well as the level of support they require.
“I like living here I have friends and the staff look after me and they take me out a lot.”
