Providing tailored support in the right environment
Consensus provides personalised support and accommodation to over 500 adults with learning disability, autism and complex needs, including behaviour that some find challenging. We’re passionate about enabling the individuals we support to live a meaningful, fulfilling life.
The teams in our services work alongside the people we support, their families as well as local commissioners. Everything we do is person centred – tailored to the individual we support and involving them fully and we use person centred planning to support them to achieve their goals. So whether a person’s needs require support in a residential service or supported living accommodation or simply needs a little extra support within the local community or with daily routines, we provide the support they need.
Life at Consensus
What each person does each day will be unique to them.
We spend time listening to, and understanding, each person we support and their family. We learn about what’s important to them, what their needs and wants are, and what goals they’d like to achieve.
Accommodation and services to suit every need
Consensus provides a wide range of services across the UK, from residential and residential with nursing services, supported living accommodation, short breaks and community support.
Promoting a positive approach
The needs of many of the people we support require complex and specialist interventions. That’s why we invest in an expert Positive Behaviour Intervention Team who are able to enhance any Consensus service anywhere in the country, whenever they are needed.
Person centred planning and support
Consensus takes a person centred approach to supporting individuals and we use person centred planning to enable them to work towards the goals they wish to achieve. This means that we tailor what we do and how we do it to suit each person’s specific, and often, complex needs.
