Our Team and Specialist Support
Meet any member of our team at London Care Partnership and you'll quickly
understand what makes us special.
We recruit talented and dedicated individuals who take pride in their profession. Then we do something quite unique.
We train them to meet the specific needs of the young people in our care.
Investing heavily in relevant and up-to-date training with programmes tailored
to each member of our team, all will benefit from initiatives such as
mentoring, on-going training, continuous learning and careful
... for one-on-one support
this is designed to benefit those we support. Our team will know the
individuals well, their likes and dislikes, and all about the particular
challenges they face.
We provide a superior working environment for our people. This helps us with
staff retention which, in turn, means we can go on providing continuity of care to those we look after.
We never use agency staff. Instead, we have our own 'bank' system to provide consistent, continuous care.
Finally, we offer attractive remuneration packages and flexible working
conditions. Plus we keep an eye on career progression, opening new
doors and giving the members of our team the chance to work with some of
the most talented experts
in their field.
of the most unique facets of care we provide is our own Board Certified
Behaviour Analyst (BCBA). Sarah Wakeling focuses on aspects of an
individual's environment – physical and social – and how these impact
Developing a Behaviour Support Plan, Sarah will
start to work on those issues that get in the way of positive learning
and introduce a range of techniques that will instead reinforce positive
attitudes and develop new life skills.
Sarah provides specific
training to fellow staff members to make sure the team as a whole uses
the same approach, in line with the particular individual's Behaviour
Support Plan. This is then regularly reviewed and adapted as time goes
Speech & Language Therapy
Another unique facet of the care we provide is our focus on
communications skills. Kim Haddon is our in-house Speech & Language
Each of our young people is assessed before we prepare their own
individual 'communication passport'. Where challenges present, staff
receive tailored training sessions from the Speech & Language Therapist
to ensure they support each person's developmental needs.
Thanks to a range of therapies, this soon results in enhanced
interaction with the staff and fellow residents. Our young people see
their confidence boosted and their personalities flourish.
