Empowering people to live independently through person-centred support and community-based living
Here at Liaise, we are proud to provide specialist support to people with Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities. In each of our community-based properties, people with Down syndrome can make lasting friendships and learn new skills all while gaining greater independence.
In our dynamic and inclusive homes, we foster a friendly, warm and welcoming environment that encourages independence and living life to the full. Every week we offer a full spectrum of engaging services and activities tailored to the needs and capabilities of each individual.
We recognise that many people with Down syndrome have overlapping challenges and health care needs, so we tailor the support we provide to each individual accordingly. We work with each individual and their families to find a home that fully reflects their needs and wishes.
Our Residential and Supported Living Services
We provide 24/7 support and specialist care within our residential and supported living services. Since we support a wide range of ages and abilities, each of our housing solutions is unique. We believe that with the right support in place, every individual can achieve positive outcomes and enjoy as much independence as possible.
In each of our inclusive homes, we empower people to build confidence and grow their social, vocational and life skills. Our approach is guided by the principles of “person-centredness”. This means the support we provide is always based on the specific needs and wishes of each person we support.
We empower each individual to pursue their goals and this could include:
Daily activity programmes tailored to the capabilities of each individual
Support in finding employment, education or volunteering opportunities, where appropriate
Through opportunities and with guidance, we help each person to develop relationships that are meaningful to them
Outings and trips into the local community
Regular social events, both in home and in the community
Support that enables the growth of practical home focused skills such as cooking, housework and decorating.
Each person is supported within a person-centred framework, to develop their community skills such as shopping, banking and the management of health appointments
The Liaise Approach
Due to the wide range of wonderful personalities that live there, each of our homes is unique. To help find every person their ideal match, we always consider the goals, interests and ambitions of each individual. This allows us to provide bespoke guidance to every person as they are choosing a home that compliments their lifestyle.
Through many years of experience, we know that generalised support plans simply don’t work. By recognising that people are not all the same and celebrating these differences, we create individual support plans tailored to the unique personality of each person we support.
All support plans are reviewed in partnership with the individual to ensure they are meeting expectations and outcomes. Where appropriate, we welcome families, advocates and friends to contribute to this review. We recognise each person’s circle of support is different and this is always reflected within the support frameworks that are built.
Our Quality Standards
Here at Liaise, we are very proud of the high levels of support our services provide. Our commitment to quality is reflected in our outstanding outcomes and improvements to the quality of life of all the people we support. We are regulated by the Care Quality Commision and are proud to have achieved an outstanding CQC rating not once, but twice in a row for one of our services. Two of our other services have received an outstanding outcome in one of the five areas as well.
