People’s dignity and choices were respected. Relatives were very happy with the support and felt confident about raising any concerns with the manager and that they would be responded to appropriately – CQC Inspector – Ulysses House

Multi-Disciplinary Team

Input from our in-house Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) can be provided on top of a person’s support when people we support require further therapeutic and behavioural support and intervention. This is an additional resource for people who have had input and cost agreed with the person supported and/or their funding authority.

Input can range from rehabilitative support for someone in crisis; support for complex assessments and transitions; resolving and reducing emotional and behavioural issues through positive behaviour support approaches; observing, training and mentoring support teams; right through to simply being on hand to give extra advice and guidance to our support teams.

Our specialised and highly qualified MDT includes Psychology and Speech and Language Therapy (SALT). We also work closely alongside external MDT partners including Behavioural Specialists, Psychiatry, Occupational Therapy, dieticians and fitness experts.

I have worked with numerous young people in difficult situations and it was so refreshing to see the commitment of the Manager and support team….they went above and beyond in ensuring the best transition possible – Linked Professional, Birmingham Council
