South East and London
In the South East and London we provide a mixture of supported living and residential services. Our residential services offer specialist knowledge around profound and multiple learning disabilities. Our supported living services are tailored specifically to the individual and their unique abilities, and this type of support forms the vast majority of our offering within London itself.
We work with local authorities, London Boroughs and people who are self-funding. Our staff provide support in several specialist areas including, complex epilepsy support, physical and sensory support therapies and positive behaviour support.
Across the whole region our staff are recognised for the caring and compassionate way that they meet the needs of the individuals they support. This has created solid trusting relationships between staff and individuals and ensures that all staff have a thorough knowledge and understanding of each person’s specific needs, requirements and abilities.
It’s on this solid base that we have been able to build the person-centred support that delivers each and every individual we support the quality of life that they deserve.
Our services in the South East and London are located in Finchley, Mitcham, Richmond upon Thames, Sutton and Wallington.
South East and London CQC Reports
Care Quality Commission (CQC), the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England carries out inspections to ensure standards are being met. They inspect services against five criteria – whether they are Safe, Caring, Effective, Responsive and Well-led. We are pleased to say that all of our services have been given a good rating. According to CQC “Good and outstanding care is centred on the individual, has clear and visible leadership, and has processes and staff that constantly explore ways to improve.”
