Transforming care for people with learning disabilities

Our Realise service has achieved national recognition for their work with people that are part of the Transforming Care agenda. We have successfully enabled people to move out of hospital or unsuitable placements and live more independently, growing in confidence and self-esteem. We work closely with the individual, their families as well as professionals to learn more about the individual, their childhood, interests and preferences so that we support them in the best way possible. The Transforming Care agenda is a national programme for improving the lives of people with learning disabilities/autism. The government has made a commitment to transform care for this group of people who have a mental illness or whose behaviour challenges services. This commitment focuses on empowering people and families, and ensuring that individuals receive the right care in the right place.

Realise provides tailored support for people who may be living with their family, living in their own accommodation or to those who wish to progress to more independent living. The people we support may have their service funded through their Local Authority, Health Service or through an Individual Budget. Our service can be provided in any setting, from a few hours a week to full time 24/7 support.

Realise is Somerset Care Group’s specialist learning disabilities service. Somerset Care Group is a not-for-profit care organisation, supporting individuals across the South of England. We are also an ARC England member.
