|Summary of services||CareTech Community Services was founded in 1993 and supports a wide range of people; specialising in the individual support of people with learning disabilities, especially those with additional physical or psychological impairment or with autistic spectrum disorder. The CareTech group provides high quality individual support and accommodation to more than 1300 adults and children with a range of learning and physical disabilities. The company also has several community resource centres, offering opportunities for people to learn the skills required for independent living and to experience a fuller and more complete lifestyle. |
We offer specialist services and support for people with severe physical disability, challenging behaviours, mental health problems and autistic spectrum disorder. We also provide for an increasing number of people with sensory impairment, physical disabilities, mental health issues, substance misuse and acquired brain injury. Support is offered within a highly individualised and professional planning process where the service user is a full participant. Many of our users live in progressive outward looking residential services while an increasing number have their own tenancies and a comprehensive independent support programme.
We operate several short stay or respite services. A small but growing number of people purchase their own packages of support from us using one of several types of direct payment. We also operate resource centres that offer opportunities to learn new skills; focusing on increasing independence.
