All of the young people who come to us are individuals. Each different
in their own way. Every one with their own unique needs. But all of them
with the same potential to lead better, more fulfilling and satisfying
At London Care Partnership, everything we do centres on
the individual, giving them positive, person-centred support,
surrounding them with others of a similar age and encouraging them to
assimilate new experiences and share interests with their peer group.
We support those with a range of learning disabilities, including:
Autistic Spectrum Disorder
We provide care and support for individuals with Autism and Asperger's
syndrome. Carefully planned and structured, each day will bring a sense
of security and routine to these young people who have trouble with
social interaction, communication and imagination.
by the familiar faces of our permanent staff and key workers whom they
will quickly get to know by name, they will thrive thanks to consistent
support and a range of visual aids that will prompt and stimulate them –
be it weekly time
Learning Disability and Mental Health Needs
We will help those with complex emotional, learning and health needs,
including epilepsy, personality disorder, bipolar disorder and
schizophrenia. Guided by the Care Programme Approach, we take time to
assess each case, planning flexible support that is tailored to each
individual's specific needs.
We will carry out a detailed risk assessment and set achievable goals and
realistic outcomes. With access to psychiatry and other health services by way
of our local Community Learning Disabilities Team and Community
Mental Health Teams, we maintain and review progress, keeping you
informed and up-to-date.
Complex Support Needs and Behaviours that Challenge
We support individuals with learning difficulties who may be
physically and verbally aggressive, and those with signs of
self-injurious behaviour. Some who come to us have had a number of
hospital admissions or placement breakdowns.
By identifying early signs of challenging behaviour, we can adopt a
proactive (rather than reactive) approach. Success takes many forms,
with young people beginning to enjoy community living, developing new
skills and discovering more and more independence.
