We focus on supporting individuals to manage their difficulties, whilst enabling them to reintegrate back into the local community. We work in partnership with local agencies to promote independence, overcome social isolation and access education, training and work by developing community links.
Our overarching pathway of care is one of Positive Behavioural Support. The pathway supports our focus on an individual’s quality of life and the provision of appropriate and timely support to help the individual cope with difficulties and crises. Individuals are encouraged to co-produce Positive Behavioural Support Plans with the Clinical Team in order to develop and ensure an understanding of the ways in which we can work with them to maximise wellbeing and reduce distress.
Part of the Community
We work in partnership with local agencies to promote independence, overcome social isolation and access education, training and work by developing community links.
We promote positive risk taking and proactively utilise the community as a therapeutic resource.
Managing setbacks and relapse
Our service allows for the management of, and is responsive to, the changing needs of the individuals placed with us. We recognise that recovery is a process that can feature episodes of relapse in terms of an individual’s mental health difficulties, use of substances, increased risk etc. Where it is safe and possible to do so, we are committed to working with individuals and care teams to support them through setbacks and periods of relapse which is valuable in developing an individual’s sense of control over their lives and supporting service provision at points of crisis.
The staff team is skilled and supported to respond to changing needs and are available 24 hours per day.
Individuals are able where required to move between Stages as their needs require. An individual in Stage 4 for example could move to Stage 1 or 2 should that be considered necessary should their presentation fluctuate.
Where individuals move between Stages we are able to maintain relational security for them as staff can work across the services in order to facilitate this.
