Access to support

Having a learning disability means the world can sometimes be hard to make sense of and engage with. Having someone to help is often essential if people are to feel secure and remain in control. Where access to support is limited, care receivers are often forced to exhibit behaviour designed to compete for that attention. This seems unnecessary and unhelpful and while our service acts to promote independence and reduce over-reliance on others, it also recognises that people with complex needs often require individual support to live their lives.
