Living with learning disabilities or enduring mental health issues can present a great many challenges. Whilst a number of services, and even technologies, exist to limit or mitigate many of those challenges, some individuals need a higher level of support.
Established in 1991, Encompass (Dorset) was founded with the ambition of delivering the best possible support to these individuals, supporting them in a goal orientated way, so they can live their lives to the full.
Service users are at the heart of everything they do. By adopting a person-centred approach they are able to offer a wide range of support services that give their service users the opportunity to reach their full potential; whether that’s education, relationships, employment or eventual independent living.
Whatever their ambitions, Encompass strive to work with individuals to make it a reality.
They achieve this by working closely with each of their service users on an individual basis. This allows them to tailor a service plan around goals and specific needs to ensure the individual is treated with dignity, respect and care. This way family and friends can rest assured that their loved ones are in the safest hands.
Services are solely in West & North Dorset and provide for supported living, registered residential care, respite care and an independent hospital - all run by expertly trained staff located in picturesque locations across Dorset.
