Every life holds opportunity
We believe that wherever possible, everybody should have the chance to live in a home, in a community, with access to life’s opportunities. For those with challenging behaviour, this hasn’t always been an option and in many cases has limited their access to the right support.
People with a learning disability can be more likely to experience poor mental health than the general population, and can experience communication difficulties. It is also relatively common for people with a learning disability (5%-15%) to develop challenging behaviours, including aggression, destruction and self-injury.
Because of this, we put a real emphasis on ensuring our staff have the talents, the training and the sense of shared humanity that they need to ease people’s distress, calm their anger, and teach the skills so that lives can be lived.
