Our approach to support
All of our team members complete a full induction and attend statutory training and further training courses in other subjects relevant to the provision of support for individuals at the home.
We support each individual in the creation of a person-centred plan, which provides every person with the opportunity to express how much support they would like and at a level they need to enable them to live as independently as possible. A person-centred plan also outlines the goals and aspirations of each individual, and the steps that are needed in order to reach these targets.
“I like my house and my keyworker, holiday soon and Banger Racing.”
