Case study - Consulting on the creation of a large Supported Living service.
In our work with a large organisation we developed person-centered care and support packages for several individuals on the autism spectrum (ASD). together we helped new staff teams to build the skills, confidence and resilience within to a point where they were able to deal effectively with challenging situations. At the same time we worked with service directors developing policy to ensure a service which was both congruent and robust for the 21st century.
