The Outreach service provided by CTRC is for adults with a learning disability who require specialist support. This group of Service Users would have ‘Challenging Behaviour’ and, because of the risks associated with those behaviours, pose a risk to themselves, to other people in their community and to their Support Workers.
The CTRC Care Manager undertakes comprehensive assessments that include a full report of the challenging behavior of the Service User.
CTRC will undertake an Outreach package of Support/Care only when a thorough understanding of the risks involved have been assessed. Often, if the challenging behaviour is severe, 2 Support Workers will be employed so that the Service User can access his/her community with minimum risk to others. This support is highly specialised and CTRC ensures that the Support Workers have completed specific courses that address the issues that may arise.
No matter what level of challenging behavior is displayed CTRC maintains that each person has the right to access their community and take part in leisure activities.
