Individuals with complex needs may have complex physical support needs in addition to their learning disability.

This includes a broad range, from mild physical disabilities such as impaired motor skills to profound and complex physical disabilities.

How we support people with complex needs

We have particular expertise in supporting people with more complex needs – including people who other agencies have not been able to support.

We support young people and adults with complex needs, profound learning and physical disabilities, sensory impairments, as well as those who display behaviour that is a danger to themselves and others.

Our approach to support helps to ensure that people with even the most complex needs can actively and consistently engage in all areas of their lives, as well as to learn new skills. Find out more about the way we work.


How we provide for behaviour support needs

We have a wealth of experience in successfully supporting people with behaviour that may challenge; helping them to live full lives, as part of their community. We work with people to develop positive behaviour support plans, underpinned by active support techniques.

Our practice development team works closely with the Tizard Centre in Kent to ensure we are at the forefront of best practice. The team passes this expertise on to our local teams across the country, to ensure the highest possible quality of support.


How we provide for complex physical support needs

Some of the people we support have complex physical support needs, in addition to their learning disability. This includes a broad range, from mild physical disabilities – for example, impaired motor skills – to profound and complex physical disabilities.

Whatever the level of disability, our tailored support enables people to engage, as far as possible, with all aspects of their life giving them increased confidence and independence.
