We work proactively with commissioners to shape and fine tune services to support local needs and demands and changing expectations. This may include investing in new developments or adapting and re-purposing existing services where it’s right to do so. Over the last few years there has been a greater demand from commissioners for services for individuals with learning disability who have additional complex needs.
As a result, 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. Above all, we believe in supporting them to live as independently as possible, close to their families, friends and local community. To that end, we’re fully committed to implementing the principles of the Transforming Care Agenda.
New developments and models of care
Our Development Team work at a strategic and localised level with commissioners to plan and deliver new services and models of care and approach this in different, innovative ways. This can mean adapting an existing building to create a bespoke setting – particularly if the local authority and CCG have identified individuals who fall under the Transforming Care Agenda. They also plan and create new models of care, which has led to us closing an existing service and entirely re-modelling it to create smaller settings offering supported living style options with bespoke support. This offers individuals greater independence but also brings the same benefits and securities they would find in a residential service.
