At Staffordshire County Council we understand how important it is for people to participate in meaningful activities which they enjoy. Our aim is to offer a wealth of inclusive person-centred opportunities supporting adults with a profound learning disability to live a valued lifestyle. Our mission is to promote independence whilst embracing an individual’s complexity of need.

Our Approach

We work with our customers and their advocates to find the best solutions to enrich a person’s life. To enable this, we work closely with other professionals including health, leisure, education and the local community.

Our staff are highly trained and can support individuals who have complex epilepsy, specialised feeding regimes and sensory support needs. We are committed to the principles of Positive Behavioural Support and an active support model. We ensure our communication methods meet the individual’s need, so our customers, parents and carers value the experience our service offers. By being person-centred in everything we do, we ensure everyone has a voice in shaping our service.
