Aims & Objectives

Goldcrest House is leading the way in providing high quality services for those with Learning Disabilities and Autistic Spectrum Disorders.

We will:

  • Acknowledge and respect each person’s uniqueness/individuality
  • Be driven by the wishes and aspirations of our service users, not by what staff, management, or any other group would desire
  • Constantly endeavor to maintain the rights of each individuals respect, dignity, choice, independence and fulfillment.
  • Enable the individual to minimise the effects of their disability by encouraging the development of personal and independent skills.
  • Provide appropriate help and support when independent efforts cannot be maintained.
  • Promote good health and well-being by the use of education, access to healthy care teams and by the implementation of systematic risk assessment processes.
  • Ensure that a wide range of educational, recreational, occupational and social activities are available to each individual.
  • Work as part of a multi disciplinary team in promoting individuals choice/ cultural diversity and equality

Objectives
All working practices will be based on those fundamental principles and we will constantly seek to improve them. In doing so we will

a) Endeavour to only recruit staff that understand and share our values. This commitment will be demonstrated in everyday working practice.

b) Listen to the opinions of staff and service users to ensure they are supported by company policies, appropriate levels of training, supervision and systems of support that promote well being/job satisfaction.

c) Build and maintain links with the local community through training and employment opportunities

d) Ensure that we create and work within  an open ‘no blame’ culture
