Active Support Practice Development Service

Active Support – It’s not what you do it’s the way that you do it!

  • Do you need a model of support that promotes inclusion, choice, participation and independence in everyday activities?
  • Do you need support in turning those Person Centred Plans into Person Centred Action?
  • Would you like to up skill managers to become practice managers and so improve the quality of support within your service and the people being supported?
  • Do you need support in managing your team to  work as a team in a structured way?
  • Do you want to turn all the learning and values into action and make the most of your training budget?
  • Does your organisation need support in meeting policy and best practice guidance?

If the answer to any of these questions is YES, read on to find out how ARC’s Active Support Practice Development Service can help.

Through a dedicated and committed team, the ARCUK Active Support Practice Development Service (ASPDS) aims to bridge the gap between theory and practice in developing real person-centred approaches to support.

Why Active Support?

Active Support is a model of support which ensures that people are supported to participate in every aspect of their daily lives irrespective of degree of intellectual disability.

Services who have already been supported with the implementation of Active Support have said that the model has transformed the lives of people they are supporting and staff have a better understanding of what their job role is.
