Learning and physical disabilities

We work with adults aged 18 or over, who have a range of learning and physical disabilities and complex needs.

All care and support is tailored to each person, including a structured care and support plan, which uses the Life Star model. The plan encourages each person to build on their skills and strengths so they can live as independently as possible, with as much or as little support as they require.

Our supported housing schemes are for people who, with our support, will be ready to live independently or move on to alternative supported housing within six months to two years. Support available may include:

  • Maintaining a tenancy and dealing with correspondence
  • Managing finances, including budgeting and benefits
  • Daily living skills, including cooking, cleaning and shopping
  • Socialising and community involvement
  • Accessing education, training and employment

People who have higher-level or complex needs, who are unable to maintain their own tenancy, can receive more intensive care and support in our CQC registered care or nursing homes. Staff are on-site 24 hours a day to provide care, support and assistance, including:

  • Managing personal care and medication
  • Managing nutrition and hydration needs
  • Maintaining appropriate behaviour and good communication
  • Building positive relationships
  • Developing hobbies and interests
