Rugeley Day Service

Supporting you

We provide high quality support to adults with a learning disability and other complex needs. We offer individualised care packages that incorporate social, vocational, leisure and educational activities and increase their presence in the community. Activity plans are tailored to each person's aspirations, needs and interests and are designed to help individuals to pursue a more independent lifestyle. All activities are fully risk assessed.

A dedicated group of key workers are available to work with each individual to ensure a consistent approach with clear support plans in place. We can provide services for people with varying support needs, including physical disabilities, sensory impairments, communication difficulties, cerebral palsy, brain injuries, epilepsy, pica, challenging behaviour and Down’s syndrome. We will provide the necessary staffing ratio for each individual. We aim to:

  • Provide work opportunities – paid and unpaid
  • Teach enabling skills so that people gain the confidence to use public transport and local facilities
  • Promote future goals and aspirations of independence
  • Support people to develop relationships
  • Use local facilities
  • Empower people to look after their own health needs by using local primary care facilities

We encourage the use of public transport wherever possible, but can also provide transport from people's homes to activities. People will be accompanied on the journey by the same staff who support them at the activities to give consistency and stability.

When an individual is referred to us, the manager and deputy managers will assess the referral and liaise with the relevant multi-disciplinary team to identify the level of support required. The assessment process will involve gathering information from the current service provider and family carers, as well as getting to know the individual. Each person will have a thorough transition when they will be introduced to their key working team. We would encourage individuals and their parents and carers to visit us to view the facilities and discuss the community network systems.

Location

Our office is based in Rugeley and offers facilities for personal care needs, as well as a base to which people can return in an emergency or for refreshments. We do not use the base as a regular venue for activities as our aim is to use local facilities.
