More About The Provider
Description of Service
Positive Support in Tees Community Interest Company has been operating since May 2001, and works throughout Teesside, contracting to Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland, Stockton on Tees and Hartlepool and also the NHS. We passionately believe that all people with disabilities have a rightful place as valued citizens within their community. This should include:
- The power, authority and resources to control their own lives
- The right to be treated with respect - Having the opportunity to experience meaningful and loving personal relationships
- Being able to express their own cultural and spiritual beliefs
- Having Good Health Care
- Being able to care and contribute to our community.
We operate as a Registered Social Care Provider with the Care Quality Commission and we provide person-centred care and support to people who have a range of labels and often whose personal history has been one where they have experienced difficulties in getting the support they needed to live well in the community. The adults we support have learning disabilities, Autistic Spectrum Conditions or Mental Ill Health, and sometimes more than once of these conditions, or additional complex needs. They may have needed specialist support in the past, have complex health needs and their behaviours may have challenged others in the past. Some of the people we support have had a history of Forensic needs and may have been in-patients in hospital wards or Assessment and Treatment Units before returning to live in the Community. We support around 40 people who are all very different, but the common theme around our services are that in each case the person is at the heart of our service, with highly individualised support and care provided by staff who are matched to the person's needs. All of our staff work hard to ensure that the people they support get both really high quality, well organised and consistent support and also a service which delivers genuinely personalised support based on their needs and wishes. We support a number of people across Teesside to live in their own house or flat, or with their family, with a staff team which meets their support needs.
