United Response has been supporting people in Suffolk since the beginning of 1989. 

Over that time United Response has supported many people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, challenging behaviour, autism, dual sensory loss and mental health needs.

We have helped the people we support to develop new skills, greater confidence, become a valued part of their community and to move on into homes of their own.  

Expanding Deaf Awareness

In Ipswich, we have a couple of households of people we support who are Deaf and using a range of communication systems including BSL, Signs from Glasgow and more. The service has developed a strong Deaf culture with staff requiring to have a BSL Stage I with an expectation to develop to BSL Stage II during their time there.

Staff from the service facilitate local Deaf Awareness training in the area and the people we support attend a Deaf Club locally.

Local recycling

A local donation made it possible for one of our service users in Ipswich with a passion for recycling to set up their own recycling round, collecting glass bottles from neighbours, which allowed them to build friendships and connections with the local community.
