New to Dimensions?

The people we support are at the heart of everything we do, and you’ll find that Dimensions people are friendly, approachable and committed to the safety and wellbeing of your relative.

This section is about how we work with families in supporting people with learning disabilities and autistic people.

Using an approach called person-centred thinking, we‘ll work with you and your relative to identify how to provide the best support. Everyone has different requirements. We can support people who may have additional physical or mental health needs, display behaviours of distress (‘challenging behaviour’) or have profound and multiple disabilities.

One of our values is partnership and it’s vital to us to work in partnership with families and friends. We’re always looking for new ways of working, supporting people to lead fulfilling, ordinary lives in their local communities.

As well as frequent contact with family members at a local level, we have more formal ways of making sure that families are listened to – through our Family Consultants, Family Charter, and our Family and Friends forum, as well as local groups and regular meetings with our senior staff.
