Leading provider of care and support services National Care Group has opened a new residential service in North Somerset.
Increasing the company’s presence in South West England, the new service will support up to eight individuals with complex learning difficulties, enabling them to live as part of the community.
Committed to supporting vulnerable adults in the community, National Care Group has worked with the local commissioning teams to develop a service that is in line with the shortage of specialist facilities in the North Somerset area.
The new accommodation and support service will ensure the people National Care Group support can create a home for themselves and better integrate into the community, while getting the expert support they need.
Mike Ranson, commercial director at National Care Group, said: “The support we have received from local commissioners for this scheme has enabled us to work collaboratively to develop a service that will meet an identified local need. We look forward to seeing the new service go from strength to strength as we welcome the first individuals to the service.”
Since 2019, National Care Group has opened 19 new residential and supported living schemes in the UK, supporting individuals with complex learning disabilities and mental health conditions.
Alongside the North Somerset service, a further residential scheme supporting vulnerable adults is planned in the spring, as the national provider continues to grow its network across the country.
Mike Ranson added: “Our strategy is to always ensure that vulnerable adults across the UK can lead rich and fulfilling lives with the support of our specialist teams. We are constantly assessing how we can improve our services in a way that enhances best practice in the sector. This is a really exciting time for the National Care Group, as we continue to grow organically as well as acquire and integrate high quality local operators into our organisation.”
National Care Group supports more than 1,250 vulnerable adults across the UK, employing more than 2,400 colleagues.
