We are one of the leading providers of specialist care services for people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders, learning disabilities, associated conditions and challenging behaviours in the UK. With over 30 years’ experience of supporting and promoting the rights of people with ASD, we have a proven track record of managing and reducing the impact of severe challenging behaviours. We recognise the ultimate value of the individual and their right to be treated with dignity and respect and to fully participate in community life.
Whatever a person’s condition, we don’t allow it to rule their life. Instead we aim to limit its impact by supporting them to take control of their lives as far as possible.
We are a not-for-profit organisation and a registered charity; regulated and inspected by the Care Quality Commission and Ofsted.
We provide residential care for adults and children, education and outreach support services to people in their own homes. The individuals’ needs and the principles of positive behaviour support (PBS) and person-centred planning underpin everything we do.
We work together with the individuals to support them in making decisions about their lives and futures. We look to discover what their personal aspirations are in life and develop bespoke plans to suit each individual. We work with them to help realise their personal goals; whether it’s going to college, learning new skills, getting a job or moving towards independence.
We aim to promote the health, development and wellbeing of each individual, whilst developing and nurturing their specific interests. We create person-centred environments which enable people to make their own choices, live fulfilling and productive lives and become valued members of their community.
