Learning Disabilities

We aim to provide people with more choice and control over their own lives. We offer a wide range of specialist services based in the heart of the local community.

We provide positive, flexible and encouraging support for everyone. Our person-centred approach, enables people to achieve their goals and aspirations in life. Everyone is encouraged to have belief in reaching their full potential within a safe, nurturing and positive environment.

Positive Behaviour Support

Our Behaviour Advisors are trained in the positive principles of Studio Three behavioural management techniques.  Their role is to work collaboratively with staff to develop and review positive behaviour support plans and introduce proactive strategies. Working alongside staff teams, they support people at times of extreme challenge or crisis. They are trained to undertake B-BAT assessment (Brief Behavioural Assessment Tool) and work closely with the people they support to establish their individual needs and aspirations.

Active Support Model

Staff utilise tools such as the Active Support Model. This is a tool used to ensure people are involved with every aspect of their lives through carefully planned interventions and mentoring which enables development. The Active Support Model is outcomes focused, which allows monitoring of progress towards maximised participation.
