Supporting people with disabilities is a team game
Experience teaches us that people who achieve the outcomes to which they aspire do so with support from a range of individuals and organisations working in partnership, all swimming in the same direction.
The involvement of families is key, particularly when people lack capacity to make some decisions for themselves. Families are often more important to the people we support than anyone else.
The close involvement of those organisations which fund and purchase support is also important. Care practitioners, in particular, have much to contribute.
Other agencies, too, play major roles – Doctors, Psychiatrists, other healthcare specialists, advocates, activity providers, faith groups.
At Ashcroft we seek to engage all people in supporting people with disabilities to achieve their goals.
