SUPPORTING PEOPLE WITH LEARNING DISABILITIES
BDC Supporting Services is an umbrella body which incorporates four Residential Care Homes: Brigstock House, Dunheved Lodge, Clifton Manor and Northern House. BDC also runs Brigstock Activity Centre (BAC).
We aim to promote independence, teach basic survival skills and enable the Service Users to enjoy a happy and meaningful life as far as their physical and mental condition permits. The Service Users are encouraged to develop their potential skills. They are treated with respect as a dignified individual person with autonomy and full legal rights as a normal citizen making use of the community resources.
The Homes use the practice and assessment as set out in the “Homes are for Living In” and “Guidance for the Residential Care Need for People with a Learning Disability” produced by DoH Social Services Inspectorate. We have a Quality Charter and believe in the O’Brien’s Principles of Care.
The Homes are registered with the Care Quality Commission and are members of NCA, ARC and BILD. Inspection Reports are available from each of the Homes own page.
