Our first priority is to ensure that people with learning disabilities enjoy the same right to a happy and fulfilled life as everyone else.
Each individual in our care begins a personalised care pathway that helps them to develop the necessary skills to leave our LD services and move towards a less restricted setting or supported living.
Our services include substantial Speech and Language Therapy inputs and the use of Assistive Communication Technology enabling improved communication and social skills.
Community Care Services
Cambian Community Care provides high quality outcome focused care for adults with learning disabilities, who may have behaviours that challenge and associated complex needs.
Many of our service users present with a dual diagnosis (such as mental health problems or substance misuse) and autistic spectrum disorders.
Our services include an independent hospital, residential care homes and supported living services. We are able to provide suitable support based on the person’s needs, as well as offer different services as they make progress; develop their independence and require less intensive support.
We have an established track record of delivering positive outcomes for people who often come to our services after a placement breakdown or with particularly high and often misunderstood needs but are able to re-establish self-esteem and a sense of purpose during their time with us.
Each of our services is unique in layout and accommodation. Our facilities range from one, two, three or four bed self-contained apartments, to a few service users living together in a large spacious property. This allows us to meet each individual’s specifics needs and requirements.
We have established different work projects to introduce vocational and learning activities where the people in our care can learn valuable skills and develop confidence.
- Our bakery is based near Kirkside in Leeds and runs as a commercial bakery under the supervision of a qualified baker. The bakery offers work placements for up to twenty people. It produces bread, pizzas, scones and other products each day for our different services.
- Our textiles workshop is based near Beacon House in Bradford, where service users produce different textile products using sewing and knitting machines and various weaving looms under supervision. It offers work placements for fifteen people who produce items such as curtains, aprons, cushions and scarves to then sell.
- Our horticulture project is based near Kirkside in Leeds. This is where service users grow vegetables, flowers and bedding plants to supply fresh produce to our different services. It offers work placements for twelve people who work all year round in our allotment and poly-tunnels.
- Our education centre provides a range of ASDAN accredited courses tailored to suit individual service users’ needs incorporating learning through sensory and academic experiences.
