Our vision is to provide a service that delivers a safe and secure environment. Supporting individuals to achieve their personal aspirations and reach their full potential.
“At ASC our service is tailored to individuals with learning disabilities who either display or are at risk of displaying behaviours that are perceived as challenging.”
“At ASC our focus is on the ‘care’ surrounding the person; using informed decision-making and positive risk taking in everyday life to enable each individual to live as independently as possible while accessing the support they require.”
“Staff are good but they cannae beat me at FIFA though.”
James T, Service User
We use various methods of communication to ensure each resident has a full understanding of what is happening in their life.
We do this through daily one-to-one time; weekly reviews and open voice meetings, and we have staff registered to utilise talking mats. We also communicate through our lunch club and newsletter; through surveys and by independent advocacy.
