The Blackpool extra support service has an excellent reputation of providing care and support to individuals aged 16+ with/without a learning disability to live in their own homes, who may exhibit behaviours that can be considered as challenging and may put themselves or others at risk where specialist support may be required.
The service is managed by a CQC registered manager, a management team and staff team who are available to work over a 24-hour period.
The service adopts the ethos of positive risk management and positive behavioural support, which includes a range of intervention strategies in supporting individuals who challenge services by the behaviour’s they may exhibit.
Support offered ranges from a few hours each day to 24-hour intensive support within the individuals' own homes and also on an ‘outreach’ basis whereby ‘targeted support’ can be offered. The service aims to support individuals in all aspects of daily living, whilst still promoting independence, choice, control and inclusion through a process of essential lifestyle planning.
As a service we are keen to build a specialist/focused service around the individuals' needs to ensure they reach their full potential. By endeavouring to support an individual to be themselves, grow into their own skin, feel comfortable with their life, and encourage them to move on, gain new experiences and take positive risks ensuring each individual achieves positive outcomes in their lives.
