Learning Disabilities, Autism and Mental Health
Community Integrated Care provides specialist support to people across Scotland who have learning difficulties, mental health concerns, autism, acquired brain injuries and physical disabilities. We're committed to delivering genuinely person-centred support that enables them to lead full lives in their communities.
We have almost three decades experience in providing care and support services. With our breadth of experience in delivering innovative solutions, we are able to provide greater independence and a better quality of life for every person we support.

Across Scotland, we deliver:
Working in partnership
To deliver the best possible services it’s vital to work in partnership with other organisations. We collaborate with people who use our services, their families, commissioning teams, GPs, clinicians and carers to deliver effective social care solutions.
Nationally, we are proud to be active members of Scottish Care, ARC Scotland, Coalition of Care and Support Providers and The Scottish Commission for Learning Disability.
We are committed to working in partnership with health and social care commissioning partners to develop integrated services that make the biggest impact possible on the communities we work in. Our charity also has thriving relations with housing providers across Scotland, enabling us to create new services and ensure that the people we support enjoy living in high-quality accommodation.
It is equally important that our services have local connections too. We work hard to ensure that they are at the heart of their community, having connections with the people and places that matter most to the people we support. See some of our local and national partnerships...
Social inclusion and independence
We are committed to the promoting social integration locally and nationally. Community Integrated Care proudly adopts ARC Scotland's Charter for Involvement. The Charter has been developed by people who access support services, working with ARC’s National Involvement Network. It features 12 key statements that show how people who use support services want to be involved in the services they receive and the communities they live in.
We also have expertise in employing assistive technologies and telecare systems, successfully using them in a variety of settings to improve the independence and safety of the people we support.
Community Integrated Care aims to enable the people we support to grow in independence and develop their own support networks. In doing so, we have been able to safely reduce the amount of paid support many people require from us – empowering the individual and meeting the needs of local commissioners.
We use a number of leading person-centred planning tools, which have been developed by our partners at Helen Sanderson Associates. These help us to understand what the people we support want from life and how we can best enable them to achieve this. For example, in every service we actively use One-Page Profiles with both our colleagues and people we support, so we can match the people we support with the colleagues best suited to them, and focus on what matters most to them.
See how we’re using One-Page Profiles…
Community Integrated Care has Silver Investors in People status across Scotland. All of our staff receive a wide range of mandatory and bespoke training, including development on person-centred practices provided through our partners at Helen Sanderson Associates.
