Our approach to support

Everybody who lives at Brecon Road has their own person-centred care plan, which is co-produced with input from the individual, their family members and professionals involved in their care. We aim to help everyone in our care to make their own choices about the support they receive. This may include support in a number of areas, such as going out in the community, personal care, cooking and cleaning, managing finances and maintaining family relationships.

We have experienced staff trained with a wide variety of skills, and have undertaken specific training regarding the range of difficulties that can present in the people we support. We also work with professionals like positive behaviour support (PBS) practitioners, occupational therapists and psychologists to deliver a person centred approach and deliver high quality care for the people we support.

In addition, we use tools such as the Outcomes Star™ and the Recovery Model, to support our residents to achieve their goals. The lengths of the placements that we offer at Brecon Road can be transitional, medium or long-term residential, depending on the needs of each person.


Everyone who lives at Brecon Road has their own personalised activities planner and are encouraged to take part in activities which are meaningful and fulfilling to them. Our dedicated team organise a variety of activities at the home, as well as out in the community.

We focus on supporting our residents to grow their independence. For some people, this may mean developing their daily living skills within the home. For others, this could be accessing work or educational opportunities in the local community.
