We are proud to have committed, proactive, and experienced teams supporting hundreds of people across the UK. Together, we put the needs of the people we support at the heart of everything that we do in order to provide consistent, high-quality care.
Our recruitment process is focussed on values, ensuring that we only employ people who believe in kindness, involvement, quality of life and progress. We provide ongoing training, support and mentoring to ensure that our team have the skills required to deliver high quality care.
This service is part of our tiered support model, providing a complete Transition Care Pathway from Residential to Supported Living services on the same site. For people with complex needs, or those who struggle with change, this care pathway creates a balance between familiarity and what is new and decreases anxieties around change. This is proven to facilitate smoother and more successful transitions.
At Precious, we are committed to improving the support we provide by embedding Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) throughout the organisation. At its very core, PBS is about treating people with respect, putting their needs at the centre and enabling them to achieve the quality and enjoyment of life that everyone aspires to.
PBS takes a person-centred approach to identify which areas of support will be most helpful to each individual. This includes working closely with the people we support to make sure that their choices and goals are heard, respected and actioned.
In addition to our highly trained support teams, we also have a specialist in-house Clinical Support Team. The Clinical Support Team is a team of specialists from different disciplines, who work closely together to deliver additional support and expertise to the people we support at Precious.
By having an in-house team, we bring together professionals and practitioners from across different sectors to deliver person-centred, holistic care which focuses on the needs of the individual. With no need to apply and wait for support from external teams, we can provide this specialist support quickly and efficiently.
Our residential provision is far removed from traditional models of support— with a focus on community integration, proactive development of independence and Individual Care Pathways.
Our qualified team members provide each person with the care and support that they need, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – providing a safe, positive and stimulating environment. Services are carefully designed to meet the needs of the individuals who live there —adapting provision to meet individual need, whilst ensuring staffing structures and training are built around each person.
Our Supported Living Plus services offer a step down for people who are ready to move away from residential care but who may need more support than supported living settings. This enables us to offer a higher level of initial support with a clear pathway for reducing support over time as people become more independent.
Accomodation is provided by Golden Lane Housing, who support people to maintain their own tenancies.
Supported Living is focused on developing independence, daily living skills and confidence enabling people to move onto more independent living over time.
We work in partnership with Golden Lane Housing, a not-for-profit organisation that provides specialist landlord services for people with a learning disability. Precious and Golden Lane work together to support individuals to set up, manage and maintain their own tenancies, with daily support provided by Precious.
