We have an excellent reputation for delivering an innovative, responsive and flexible service, which enables people we support to have greater choice and say over how they spend their day.

We support people across the whole spectrum of learning disabilities:

  • Complex health needs
  • People who have autism
  • People who challenge services
  • People with complex physical disabilities

We focus on positive outcomes for everyone and recognise the significance of relationships and suppport needed to overcome any barriers to inclusion.

Our emphasis is to take a therapeutic approach towards support and to strengthen this approach we employ a physiotherapist, an occupational therapist, have a sensory room and our own hydrotherapy pool.

We provide personal care with a fully adapted bathroom, including tracking hoists and individual bathroom support plans. Transport to and from Oakdene can be arranged in our adapted vehicles.

Our individual support plans ensure that everyone is valued and can make a positive contribution. We pride ourselves on our relationships with parents and carers and work in collaboration with them as well as clinical social care professionals, to support people to be the best that they can be.
