Community Integrated Care provides a wide range of services that enable people with mental health concerns the support need to lead full, active and independent lives. We are one of Britain’s biggest and most successful social care charities, and support thousands of people across England and Scotland.
Our services for people with mental health concerns include:
Flexibility and Choice
We deliver support that promotes recovery, giving people real choice and control over how they want to lead their lives. We look to build confidence and foster independence and resilience. To support this, we focus on really getting to know people – how they want to be supported, what they want to achieve in life and what is important to them – to offer support that is as individual as they are.
Every person we support has an outcome-focused support plan, which looks at how we can work together to make their aspirations a reality. This might include goals around being healthy, accessing the community, staying connected with family and friends, or learning new skills.
We understand that people’s mental health needs can change over time, so we always seek to adapt our support. We regularly host Person-Centred Reviews with the people we support. These see us work with the person, and the important people in their lives, to look at what is working for them and what we can make better.
We use a range of support tools including Life Story Work, the Recovery Star and Wellness Action Plans (WRAP’s), depending upon individual needs. Our colleagues also receive specialist training from Helen Sanderson Associates on a host of person-centred thinking tools, such as One Page Profiles, to promote truly personalised support.
Our charity can offer anything from 24-hour support to just a few hours a week – whatever suits the individual’s needs and personal approach to recovery.
Working in Partnership
Our teams always work closely with the individual and their loved ones, as well as the relevant professionals and agencies who may be involved in their support, such as Community Mental Health Teams and GPs.
We also have a fantastic team of Peer Reviewers in every region we provide support. These are people we support, who are trained and employed as ‘experts by experience’. They review our services from the perspectives of people who receive them, to help ensure that we’re delivering the personalised services that we aspire to.
