Introduction

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

Our Communications

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.

Our Offer

Our service is founded on a number of key priorities:

Choice

Choice

Personalisation is fundamental: our service empowers service users, their families and carers, and we support each resident to maintain and improve control and choice over their own life.

Human Rights

Human Rights

Personalisation is fundamental: our service empowers service users, their families and carers, and we support each resident to maintain and improve control and choice over their own life.

Equality and Inclusion

Equality and Inclusion

We help promote, recognise and encourage the individual by supporting people with learning disabilities to use the same services and have the same opportunities and entitlements as anyone else. In doing so, we also celebrate diversity and challenge inequality.

Person Centred

Person Centred

The individual is at the centre of their care plan. Their views and aspirations inform their decision-making, and this ensures that the individual is not isolated from society. We encourage one-to-one time with our service users on a daily basis. This helps to identify meaningful engagements, both within each unit and the wider community, which can assist our service users to develop their goals and devise appropriate plans to achieve them.

Strengths Based

Strengths Based

We believe that by focusing on existing strengths, skills, talents, positive behaviour and resources we can provide the strongest foundation for person-centred care, while building personal competence.

Respect

Respect

We promote respect by valuing the whole person, and the diversity of everyone who supports and sustains him or her. We appreciate the contribution of families and carers and, where possible, we promote the contributions of others.

Partnerships

Partnerships

Recognising that health and social outcomes are interdependent, we are committed to strengthening our multi-disciplinary team by promoting joint partnership working with service users, their families and our stakeholders.

Health

Health

We focus on each individual’s physical and mental health and well-being, in order to enable an inclusive lifestyle. Our workforce is multi-skilled, and its diversity ensures we provide a holistic approach to care. This is why we recruit learning disability nurses and mental health nurses; as well as general nurses.
