With over 30 years’ experience, we provide specialist services with complex and high dependency needs, to enhance their independence and deliver cost effective outcomes.
The Disabilities Trust's Disability Services are the means by which we provide specialist services for people with physical disabilities including cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, arthritis, stroke, multiple sclerosis and disabilities resulting from accidents.
As well as providing physical care, we are committed to ensuring people have independence and control over their lives and are treated with dignity and respect at all times. Needs are individually assessed, and care is delivered in a person-centred environment, either in a service user's own home or in a community or residential setting
Trained and dedicated staff
We believe that it is vital to invest in our staff to ensure they are committed to person centred planning to achieve outcomes which maximise independence and meet service users' needs and aspirations.
Staffing levels reflect individual needs, while all staff members receive comprehensive training when they join our services. To promote a sense of working together, we also match individual team members to service users who share similar interests.
We are committed to the development of its staff at all levels. New team members undergo an accredited induction programme and they are actively encouraged to attend the many in-house training opportunities that we offer.
We also have our own NVQ centre which offers a wide range of learning opportunities.
Our experienced therapeutic team includes physiotherapists, speech and language and occupational therapists.

Making a referral
Initial referrals are generally made via a Local Health Authority or Social Services. We use a combination of methods to accurately assess each individual's needs. This will then inform the support plan for the individual's move to the most appropriate service. We accept referrals from a wide range of agencies and commissioning care foundations, including health, social services and other service providers.
