Community Based Services

Our community based services deliver specialist care that meets Transforming Care priorities and is tailored to the individual’s needs, enabling people to lead independent, meaningful lives as active members of the community.

Within our community based services we are able to provide support for those who have profound and multiple learning disabilities, autism and sensory communication difficulties, along with providing expert nursing care and support for people with complex needs and challenging behaviours, such as mental health needs, personality disorder and forensic histories.

These community based services provide a robust, structured setting that may suit those who are stepping down from hospital or avoiding an inappropriate hospital admission. The teams within our registered care services are also specialists in working with epilepsy and young people transitioning into adulthood. A number of our service users will move on from here to more independent settings such as supported living alternatively some will be cared for longer term.
