Our service reflects our clients. 


We really are a person-centred service that understands the complexities of 'the hidden disability' and the problems that may arise with cognitive, memory, communication and behaviour. 


Each client is assessed individually, so that together, we can develop an individual learning plan for the client to support, enhance and empower their lives to the best they can be.
