How we support you

Our approach to support is based on best practice and achieving the right outcomes for each individual person.

The Ambient Way means we may choose to use a range of differing approaches and tools dependent on their personal needs, health condition and the support they require.

Our Learning Disability services range from residential care homes through to supported living, and 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.

Our staff teams are all trained in Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) so that we can understand people better and give the right support at the right time. PBS is about improving quality of life and it’s particularly useful in helping people with more complex needs who may display behaviours that concern.

We deliver a full programme of PBS training for staff at all levels in conjunction with the British Institute of Learning Disabilities (BILD).

Ambient is an active supporter of the NHS STOMP Programme and aim to help reduce the use of psychotropic medication for people with learning disabilities and/or autism. View an Easy Read leaflet about the STOMP Programme.
