Learning disabilities

We provide a range of support services for adults with learning disabilities. Find out more about what we do here.

We offer person-centred services designed to deliver positive behavioural support, encouraging independence and community engagement.

Our learning disability services aim to give individuals consistency, stability and to support their evolving and ongoing needs. As one of the UK’s largest providers of housing, care and support, we are well-placed to support people in your communities, offering an integrated approach that considers both service and building design.

Customers include young people and adults aged 16+ who have a learning disability and who are in need of extra care or support. We also work with carers, people coming out of long-term institutions and forensic referrals.

Just some examples of impact from Home Group's mental health services. Our respite unites in Solihull prevented hospital admissions for 13 people in the first 2 months. Participants of our health coach service reported a variety of positive outcomes including weight-loss, smoking cessation, improved mental health, and employment. The social value of one participant achieving these outcomes could be £55,762. An admission to our step-down service in Norfolk saves approx £3,500 per person compared to a hospital stay. 26% improvement in self-reported wellbeing during an individual's time with us.

Person-centred

The support we provide is person-centred and delivered as part of a multi-agency approach.

By working with individuals in their own homes and communities, we can support with day-to-day challenges, enable them to do things for themselves and often address issues before they reach crisis point.

Our approach reduced demand on already pressurised health and social care sectors, promoting efficiency savings and supporting effective hospital bed discharge.

Individuals are enabled at home, are able to connect to their wider community and have access to our accredited training and apprenticeship schemes, which can support them into further learning and employment.
