Learning disabilities

Supporting people with learning disabilities to live as they choose is something Milestones Trust has been doing for 30 years, and few providers can rival our depth of knowledge and experience.

Our homes offer support for service users with a wide range of needs, including those with physical disabilities, complex emotional needs such as autism, and nursing requirements. 

PersonalisationAshlea and Gavin

We aim to support people to live as full a life as possible within their local community.

People using our residential services take part in a wide variety of activities both within the home and beyond.

These may include college courses, sporting activities, church services, cinemas, libraries and visiting places of interest. 

We aim to give people as much choice and control over the support they receive as possible. We are currently working with every residential service to identify the support each person needs to meet the outcomes which are important to them. By doing this, we can offer every person who lives in a residential service a unique package of support, tailored to their individual lifestyle.

Younger People's Services

We offer a range of specialist services tailored to younger people.

Specialist staff

Staff teams trained over and above the industry standard ensure residents are empowered to make their own choices, as well as supporting people with personal care, taking medication, managing their finances, keeping safe, and living in a pleasant environment.

As well as the full range of statutory training, we offer specific training around a wide range of subjects - from epilepsy to medication, or autism awareness to training around our shared values. We believe that our skilled and responsive staff are our greatest asset as an organisation, and we invest in them accordingly.

Independence

We believe that offering too much support can be as damaging as offering too little, and our staff are skilled at helping people to do as much as they can for themselves. Our staff teams pride themselves on the detailed knowledge and supportive relations they build with each person they work with, and constantly assess how much support each person needs to lead as independent life as possible.
