A-Z of social care
We can provide rehabilitation and support to you if you have an acquired brain injury – whether you have had the condition from early childhood, or have acquired it later in life, through an accident or illness.
United Response pioneered the active support approach, which is fundamental to the way we provide effective, person centred support. It is a way of providing assistance to people that focuses on making sure they are engaged and participating in all areas of their life.
Although we support people across the whole range of learning disabilities, we have particular expertise in supporting people with more complex needs – including people who other agencies have not been able to support. We have a strong track record in supporting people to move on and to enjoy a better quality of life.
The Foundations of Good Support is a step by step guide to assessing the quality of support being provided for people with learning disabilities and/or autism, and identifying what might need changing in order to improve it.
United Response provides a range of housing services. If you have a disability, we know how difficult it can be to find a home that meets your needs – and that’s why supporting people to find the right housing is such an important part of what we do.
We work with young people and adults with a wide range of learning disabilities across England and Wales. To plan the right kind of support, we work closely with each individual and the people who are important to them. In this way, they get the support they want, in the way they want.
Positive Behaviour Support is an approach used to support people whose behaviour is challenging. We use a range of recognised tools to understand the relationship between challenging behaviour and other aspects of the person’s life and environment.
We use proactive strategies to support people with challenging behaviour, designed to reduce over time the need for people to behave in ways that are challenging and improve their quality of life.
Training in Systematic Instruction (TSI) is a teaching approach we use that presupposes everyone, no matter how disabled, has the right to learn skills.
