Most of the support provided by the Trust is delivered 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We operate with a high ratio of staff to individuals receiving support. Most of our services support four or less individuals. This ensures that we can provide personalised support and to assist everyone to engage in activities that meet their personal needs and preferences.
Our supported living services are usually very active and busy places. They have been described as homely and familiar. The individuals we support are encouraged to explore new activities, develop new friendships and to learn independent living skills. Following the covid-19 pandemic they have also become places full of creativity and fun, as we have not let social isolation and lockdowns stop us from keeping in touch with relatives and friends. All of our services have tablet computers that facilitate contact with relatives and friends, and access to wider community events such as bingo and virtual discos.
The delivery of care and support within our Supported Living services is overseen by a Registered Manager who is responsible for ensuring we deliver outstanding support. In addition to this, there is a local management team that has responsibility for the day to day running of every service. Our staff teams are highly experienced, well trained and have usually worked for the Trust for many years.

Our aim is to provide high quality, specialist support to those with profound learning and physical disabilities.

That does not stop us from striving to engage and involve them in every aspect of their lives. We have developed our own set of Profound and Multiple-Disability Standards which focus on how we can communicate with and involve individuals in meaningful and measurable ways.
