From our offices in Alfreton and Cromford, we provide services across the South Derbyshire area.  We specialise in providing a range of support services for adults with learning disabilities to enable people to live full lives and achieve their goals and aspirations.

What we do

Within our Supported Living Services, our skilled and experienced support teams are trained to provide person centred support to people with even the most complex of needs in their own homes, 24 hours a day, enabling people to maintain their independence, develop new skills and live their lives the way they choose.

The unique needs and skills of each person we support are recognised and celebrated, to enable each person to maximise and achieve their best quality of life.

About our staff

Our ongoing training and staff development is based on the needs of the people we support and the staff who support them. This ensures that everyone (support workers and people we support) are kept happy and safe!

Phillipa has a degree in counselling and decided to join us as a support worker:

 “The best decision I ever made was to come and work for United Response.  The in-house courses on Active Support and Person Centred Support are phenomenal in explaining the right way to support and how to adapt to individual needs.  I’ve decided not to go back to Uni to complete my Masters because I'm definitely in the right job in an organisation that is truly person centred.  Why would I want to do anything else when I am supporting people to do wonderful things?”
