Catholic Care | Learning Disability Services


Adult Learning Disability

We support adults with varying degrees of learning disability by providing residential homes, supported living and supported housing as well as outreach support.

Users of our services, whether residents or tenants or living in their own homes range from the more able to those requiring more complex care and support. We use a fresh, outcome-focused approach, involving person-centred planning, to offer each individual greater independence and autonomy.

49 adults with learning disabilities live in our residential and supported-living homes.

Our philosophy: control and choice

People with learning disabilities want a real say in where they live, what they do and who looks after them. We believe they should have the same rights and choices as the rest of society, so that they, too, can achieve self-fulfilment.

That’s why we build privacy, dignity and choice into our services, as well as control, responsible risk-taking and the preservation of individual rights. We also promote personal development through the learning of new skills and the achievement of positive outcomes, and we focus on creating social, leisure, employment and education opportunities.

Close partnerships

We work closely with families, advocates and other professionals (including the Care Quality Commission, social workers and care managers) to deliver a very high standard of individualised care. Each person has their own personal-centred plan, which is regularly assessed to reflect their changing needs.

Our staff

Our homes are staffed by genuinely caring people who will regularly choose to go the extra mile. We carefully select and develop specialist professionals who are committed to supporting each person in meeting their own evolving needs. When recruiting new staff, where able, we involve the people we support (and their family members) in the process. We recognise the value of a hand-picked team and of regular training and development.
