Accommodation and services across England, Scotland and Wales
Consensus provides a variety of friendly, flexible and accessible services across the UK. These range from residential and residential with nursing services, supported living accommodation and community support.
As with the support we provide, the accommodation we offer has to be in the right setting and offer the most conducive environment to meet individual’s needs. Support and surroundings go hand in hand in our approach. We work closely with families and commissioners as well as the individuals themselves, listening to what they want and understanding what they need before recommending the best Consensus service for them. While we always aim to offer the service closest to the individual’s family and friends, we will recommend the service that’s best able to support them, and where they’ll fit in well with those who are already there
Each of our residential services is unique and accommodates people in smaller settings designed to feel like their home. The people we support need and deserve the very best support, and with small services we’re able to tailor everything we do to each person. Our services are almost all in carefully adapted houses in attractive residential areas close to shops, services and community resources.
Supported living services
Our supported living services allow people with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs to have greater levels of autonomy and independence through having their own tenancy and to have maximum choice and control over their lives. Individuals will have a person-centred, bespoke support plan alongside their tenancy which enables them to lead a full, active, meaningful life within their local community.
In some of our residential and supported living services we offer shared accommodation in the form of a ‘flat share’ for people who don’t mind sharing their living space with others, be it a friend, a partner or someone they don’t yet know, in a self-contained flat. This type of accommodation supports independence and companionship, enabling individuals to share their life experiences together, but with the privacy of having their own bedrooms, and in some cases their own bathrooms too.
As well as providing direct, practical support to people in their own homes we help people with accessing the local community and also provide day centres in the community.
