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 to identify local needs and answer them with quality, tailored solutions. That can mean developing 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 and care managers to find the service which will meet individual’s needs in a setting as close as possible to their family and local community.
Investing, adapting and evolving our services to meet changing expectations
We work proactively with commissioners to shape and fine tune services to support local need. This includes investing in new developments or adapting and re-purposing existing services. Find out how we are leading the way to deliver new residential and supported living services which meet the bespoke needs of the people we support and deliver the necessary outcomes for them.
Supporting the Transforming Care Agenda and changing lives
Living rough on the streets, locked up in a secure hospital, over-medicated – this is the sad but not uncommon story of people with learning disabilities and behaviours that challenge when they first arrive at our service – never having had the chance to live more independently, be a part of their community or reach their full potential. Anthony’s story tells his journey to a more independent and fulfilling life and the turning point that changed his life.
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.
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.
