Providing community outreach and day opportunities
At Consensus we’re passionate about supporting people with learning disability and complex needs to have as wide a choice of opportunities as possible to develop their skills and live their life in the way they choose.
As well as providing direct, practical support to people in their own homes through our outreach support plans, we forge ties with community groups and charities, social and leisure groups, education providers and employers in local communities to help people make the most of the opportunities on their doorstep.
We also have three centre-based opportunities in a day setting which give individuals an invaluable opportunity to experience learning and therapeutic activities, developing their skills and confidence and giving them a chance to make new friends.
Whether a person is living with their parents, in their own home or in a supported living setting, our support workers go to them, helping them with any aspect of their life. That might mean showing them how to do their laundry or cook a meal, or it may involve going out in the community to enhance their social skills – in short, providing whatever help they need to enjoy a good quality of life and achieve their goals.
Other areas where we provide support include: personal care, diet, shopping, finding funding, maintaining a tenancy, dealing with health and social services, maintaining relationships, personal finances, building self-esteem.
Centre-based opportunities: day settings
Consensus has three day centres across England and Wales for people who are living in our services, in supported living schemes or at home with their families. The skilled and experienced teams within the centres build a programme of learning and therapeutic activities for each person based on their interests and needs. This gives individuals the opportunity to develop their skills and confidence, explore new experiences and make new friends – all in a bright and supportive setting.

Over time our services have evolved so that we can offer a wide range of quality residential, supported living and transition services to meet bespoke needs. We invest time, resources and expertise in ensuring that a new setting is exactly right for an individual – always involving them in that process.
Life at Consensus
Every individual we support has their unique goals and dreams. What each person does 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.
