What things are you most proud of in your services?

“Our teams don’t really see someone’s disability. You see that in the ways we support people to do more, whether it’s with family or friends or finding a volunteer job. It’s also pleasing when we work with other social care organisations as partners because it means we are doing something different in the best interests of people who need support. We also have a relatively low staff turnover in our support workers which means there is a lot of trust as well as experience.”
