The Midlands and Gloucestershire
We deliver highly personalised support to individuals with a wide range of needs including: learning disabilities, profound and multiple tearning disabilities, autism, physical disabilities, sensory needs and dual diagnoses. We do this through supported living, floating support and residential services.
Two of our residential services are in converted farmhouses and both are set in large grounds with orchards, paddocks and gardens. This has allowed us to build and share skill in animal care and we have a goats, chickens and some prize winning sheep.
Our region covers Gorsley and Newent in Gloucestershire, Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, Tamworth in Staffordshire and Ledbury in Herefordshire where our regional office is also located.
We also provide education and skills development support which aims to engage adults with learning disabilities in meaningful daytime group activities as well as supported employment where staff specialise in developing employment opportunities for adults with disabilities.
The Midlands and Gloucestershire 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.”
