Our specialisms and expertise

Our dynamic approach to supporting people with complex support needs enables us to respond flexibly to people's changing requirements.

About our specialisms
  • Learning disability

    We support adults with a wide range of learning disabilities, and the physical health conditions that often go hand in hand with their diagnosis.

  • Autism

    We offer tailored support for autistic people who often require a life time of specialist support.

  • Mental health

    Many of the people we support have mental health needs. We support people who have severe mental illness, and who may also have additional support needs including substance use as well as learning disabilities or autism.

  • Acquired brain injury

    We support people with mild to severe acquired brain injuries (ABI), where they need long term, perhaps lifetime care.
