ABOUT SERVICE

Our Learning Disability services range from residential care homes through to supported living, short breaks, respite and day services. We also help young people, and their families, transition from children’s services to adult support settings. We are committed to providing person-centred, responsive support to people with learning disabilities, following an ‘Active Support’ approach that helps people gain skills, confidence and control of their lives.

In order to protect both our staff and the people we support, unless there are wholly exceptional reasons (which we will consider on an individual basis), it is a requirement that all new employees have a Covid-19 vaccination prior to commencing with Ambient Support, and that they continue to receive Covid-19 vaccinations as required and in accordance with public health guidance throughout their employment with us.
