Working in partnership with health and social care professionals
We appreciate the huge pressures commissioners face and as social care professionals ourselves we understand the constantly changing agenda. That’s why we work collaboratively with clinical commissioning groups, local authorities and continuing healthcare teams up and down the UK to identify local needs and answer them with quality, tailored and timely solutions. That can mean developing brand new services or evolving and enhancing existing ones to meet local gaps in the market or specific commissioning needs.
Our teams work with individuals, their families, commissioners, social workers and care managers to find the most appropriate service so that we can promote the best outcomes for individuals. Ultimately we support people to move to a setting as close as possible to their local community, family and friends.
Referrals and admissions
We pride ourselves on developing long-term relationships with commissioners and Local Authorities so that we can fully understand how our partners work and what they need. In turn, this ensures that they become familiar with all our services and teams.
Innovation and new developments
The members of our Development Team work proactively with commissioners to scope and fine tune services.
We review and re-invest in services to ensure they meet today’s market needs and can deliver the necessary outcomes for the people we support.
Transforming Care and Changing Lives
Even before the Transforming Care Agenda began to be rolled out some years ago, Consensus was shaping the accommodation and skills of service teams to suit the precise needs of the individuals we support.
Historically we have strived to offer the right models of support in the community for people with complex needs long before these became buzz-words in our sector.
Tom’s Story – Deansbrook – Success Story
Following a great many years living in a number of restrictive institutional settings, including a period at an Assessment & Treatment Unit, Tom came to live at Deansbrook, one of Consensus’ residential homes in Essex.
Tom, who has a learning disability, autism and presents with multiple behaviours that challenge had experienced life thus far in the most difficult of settings without the necessary support in place that protected him or others.
