Residential services in safe, supportive, nurturing settings
Our residential services are situated in the U.K. and offer support and accommodation for people with learning disabilities, autism and additional complex needs, including Prader-Willi Syndrome. A residential setting offers people the reassurance and security, where support is available 24/7. These services are often smaller settings, designed to feel like an individual’s home. To help provide the right balance of support and accommodation to suit people’s needs and preferences, we offer a mixture of fully shared accommodation, some shared/some self-contained accommodation, while others offer self contained flats.
What is a Residential Service?
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 and are often modified to meet specific needs. The main difference between a residential setting and a supported living setting is that team members are there 24/7 to ensure support is always on hand.
Our residential services can provide a “step down’ option for people who may have spent long periods in secure settings and are now working towards greater independence. For others they offer a safe, nurturing environment where they can live their life within their local community, with the level of support they need. Some of our residential services also provide nursing support for people with physical disabilities and other complex needs.

Consensus provide RESIDENTIAL and SUPPORTED LIVING services across the UK providing expert support to people with learning disability, autism, complex needs and Prader-Willi Syndrome.
About our supporting living services
Our supported living services are ideally suited to people who have developed more independent living skills and this may include people who are ready to move on from a residential service. Supported living services suit people who need extra help with daily living tasks and to participate fully in their local community, but who don’t need full residential support.

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.
